The Echonetdaily story that ‘Lismore abandons library takeover bid’ is a real good-news report.

Councils and councillors, like libraries, are only as good as their information.

It’s up to the Lismore councillors now to show their support and leadership for the reported staff recommendations come Tuesday night.
