YOUTH councillors have been busy stocking up with arms full of novels in preparation for the opening of a new facility in town.

YOUTH councillors have been busy stocking up with arms full of novels in preparation for the opening of a new facility in town.

The young town council representatives are helping to set up the Headspace Library over the next six months in Barcode in South Parade, Weston.

The youth café is currently receiving £85,000 per year until 2010 from the Big Lottery Fund. The cash will go towards the funding for the new area for book worms and computer buffs, as well as salaries, training and building maintenance for the whole venue.

Barcode is also due to get a £10,000 grant from the Big Lottery Fund, which will go towards the installation of an access ramp into the building.
