DVDs return to smaller Cumbrian libraries

Library bosses are to bring back a DVD rental service to Cumbria's smaller libraries.

The u-turn comes following public feedback on the withdrawal of the service around 12 months ago when the county council said it was concentrating on developing it in the larger ones.

It has decided to bring the service back, following more than 4,000 responses from the public.

From tomorrow, the DVD rental service will be brought back to smaller libraries. The ones to benefit include Aspatria Local Link, Brampton, Distington, Egremont, Frizington, Gosforth, Harraby (Carlisle), Hensingham, Kells, Mirehouse, Moorclose, Seascale, Seaton, Shap, St Bees and Thornhill.

Gary Strong, county council cabinet member responsible for library services, said: “The reintroduction of the DVD service into some of our smaller libraries is as a direct result of the feedback. We had over 4,000 responses which included a number of good, practical ideas we are now looking to implement in order to improve the service we offer.

“Libraries are an integral part of local communities and we want to ensure that they continue to offer the services people want and will continue to use.”

No - surely there are other ways, like CCTV or alarms, to deter thieves

It should be left up to the vicar of each church to decide
