This week, Labour’s Cllr Alan Buckley officially opened Brinsworth’s new community library. The new £270,000 facility has been delivered through a joint project between Rotherham Council and Brinsworth Parish Council.
The library has been the result of a lot of work over many years and is being delivered between Rotherham Council and the local parish council. Rotherham Council contributed £148,401 to the parish council with additional funding support coming from a community grant from Barratt Homes.
In opening Brinsworth’s new library, Cllr Alan Buckley – Labour councillor for Brinsworth and Catcliffe ward – has said:
“I was proud to help officially open our brand new library in Brinsworth earlier this week. This will be a fantastic facility for our local community and much supported by our residents.
“The project is a great example of this Labour council’s strong commitment to libraries in Rotherham. Where other areas have closed their libraries, this Labour council is supporting and investing in our library service across the borough.”
The opening of this new facility demonstrates Labour’s commitment to libraries in Rotherham. We’ve recently published our new libraries strategy which will see investment made in every library in the borough for improvement and refurbishment.
