It looks like a solid enough building, doesn't it? But planned council cuts mean that Taibach library might not see its 100th birthday. The good thing is the building is listed so it can't, in theory, disappear in a cloud of demolition dust. The bad thing is that despite a library covenant placed on the building by Emily Talbot and the Margam Estate, the local authority have plans to close it and rent out the space unless enough local people come forward to run it as a Volunteer Library.
if you're not already involved with the campaign to save the library and can add light to its future by offering a few hours of your time then please let the Friends of Taibach library know at this link.
