Below is a conversation on Twitter I had yesterday with fellow Library Campaigner Shirley Burnham about Harrow Council's plans for its Library service, and their response;
"great improvements" to libs promised in Harrow (hope these don't incl any *hollowing out* or staff losses) http://www.harrowtimes.co.uk/news/10185524.Harrow_residents_are_capital_s_third_highest_book_borrowers/ …

@shirleyburnham @wylie_alan Thanks for getting in touch. This is just one of the options, we have to explore different proposals in order to run as efficient a service as possible & keep libraries open. Discussions are continuing & more details will follow in the near future.
It's no secret that Harrow (and Ealing) have been considering the option of privatisation for some time see my full correspondence with them on this matter
the worrying thing is that it's Labour Councillors who are pushing this!
