Bury Council gives away books after closing 10 libraries

At the start of this year Bury Council closed 10 out of the 14 libraries across the borough, and slashed the opening times of the four that are left.

Now community group, charities and schools are all eligible to select items which are no longer required by the library service. Those who are part of an eligible group can arrange to pick books, audio-visual items and furniture from buildings that are closing.

People wishing to take advantage of the surplus books should email library.suggestions@bury.gov.uk to make an appointment.
