Walsall library needs books not another cafe

In these days, when libraries are being closed all over the district, our council decides to spend over £4m refurbishing the Central Library.

Walsall Central Library

What a waste of resources when there is nothing wrong with the present facility, at least nothing that a few new books wouldn't put right.

Then, to compound the error, the fools in charge decide that in the new library Walsall needs yet another cafe.

Do they never wander around the town and count the number of cafes trying to make a living?

We are also supposedly the most obese town so that's going to help isn't it?
