People have been urged to work together in a bid to save Highbridge’s library from closure.
The Save Highbridge Library group has formed a committee of ‘different minded people’ after some members have voiced contrasting views on the facility’s future.
Proposals include purchasing two mobile libraries, merging with the Post Office or using the building as an outreach centre.
Cllr Phil Harvey said: “We have had no discussions with librarians, we need to be talking with people on the ground to work out what can be done.
“It is important for all the stakeholders, from councillors to protesters to library staff, to be open and discuss our options.”
