If featured a wonderful collection of books on a variety of subjects and special interests.

This will never be repeated in this town.

Our libraries were stocked by highly skilled librarians and committees who catered for a wide taste.

We've lost something very special with this sale.

I've gained some very interesting books.

Sad they can't be shared by my fellow Salopians who are looking for a book on a specialist subject in the county library.

Today they say we must progress and embrace IT.

I don't know, there's something special like the feel of a book and the joy of finding something you want in those paper pages.
