Getting things done – Blackness Library #dundeewestend

A resident recently suggested it might be helpful in advertising events within Blackness Library is there was a noticeboard outside advertising activities within the library.
 
I took this excellent idea up with the Head of Library and Information Services and she has responded positively as follows :
 
“We are in agreement that this is a great idea.  Budget and planning permission may be hurdles, but we will look into this and see what is achievable.”
 
I will keep residents updated with progress.
