FURTHER to the article in the Mercury of February 24, in which I complained about the removal of publicly-donated jigsaw puzzles from the library.I have since spoken to various members of the staff who say they regretted the decision, were not consulted on this, and reiterated they did absolutely nothing in the way of storing, processing and checking, contrary to what the anonymous spokesman told your newspaper. So that was hogwash. The spokesman said also the throughput had declined a lot recently. How would he know if there was not logging in or out? More hogwash. Lastly, and the reason why I'm writing, he said that the space was sorely needed for more books. Those shelves were emptied in February, and three months later, they are still empty. Someone please save us from highly paid (by us), ignorant bureaucrats.DAVID HUNT - Gerard Road, Weston
