LIBRARY campaigners will form a human chain around Barnsley Town Hall this morning.

The Hands Off Our Library group have called it a 'critical' week in their campaign, as Barnsley Council's ruling cabinet meets to hear the results of the library consultation and decide the fate of the Shambles Street building.

Dave Gibson, a campaigner in the group, said: "We're still hopeful councillors will listen to the voice of the people of Barnsley.

"We call on all those who can to join us so councillors can be in no doubt that we're as angry as ever."

If it's agreed by councillors it will mean the much-loved library will close on March 21 and reopen at Wellington House on May 15.

The final decision will be made by full council on Thursday, February 6.
