Library – let’s hope they get it right

I WAS pleased to read that the county council is planning to upgrade Hastings Library - a much-needed improvement.

However, although your article referred to development of skills and literacy, it did not mention that in order to accommodate Learn Direct, a few years ago the excellent music room was abolished, the staff re-located, and a lot of the stock sold off at knock-down prices.

I very much hope that the refurbished building will include not only Learn Direct but also provide music materials to at least the standard which existed before the music room was closed down.

We also need a small recital room like the one they’ve got in Eastbourne library.
