Community-run library to open.

A NORTH Warwickshire library saved from closure will reopen in the New Year thanks to local residents.

Bulkington Library was one of 16 in Warwickshire under threat from county council budget cuts.

But villagers stepped in and formed a 'community interest company' to staff and run it from the same building.

They said a "launch date will be announced in the coming weeks."

The library will continue to loan stock from the county council, and there are plans for an internet cafe with free wi-fi access, and to hold children's parties and quiz nights. The children's library is to be relocated to the rear of the building, alongside the toy library.
