Pennard Library

Pennard Library

Jean Morris wrote;-  “I AM appalled to hear plans to close down Pennard Library are in the pipeline.  On the most basic level of protest — it is right next door to the primary school.  But it is also a social centre and the beating cultural heart of Gower (the only public library in Gower).  Other libraries are too far, too inconvenient for the frail, the elderly, those with young children or those dependent on public transport.  Will Swansea Council be seen as the creator of rich, regenerative material assets such as our splendid new boulevard and SA1, yet also a body unwilling to move heaven and if need be to find the relatively modest amount of money needed to support the basic cultural needs of our rural areas?
