"Lovely library but where are the books?"

In January I complained about the lack of books in my local library. Actually, the fiction selection is very good. It's just that the building - a cross between a departure lounge and an out-patients - dwarfs the shelves. However, the non-fiction, up two flights of stairs or a dismally slow lift, is inadequate. It seems I'm not the only one who feels this way.
Councillor Kevin Allen said: "People feel the Jubilee Library is a lovely building but say where are the books?'.
A survey of city library staff revealed their number one priority was to "improve collections". Staff are also demanding more books on the shelves and longer opening hours.
Power to the workers staff!
