Donington's volunteer-run library is likely to expand, opening up a back room.

Coun Jane King said the room - which has a kitchen - will lend more flexibility to the current services on offer.

She said the expansion could create dedicated space for children's crafts, such as painting and working with clay, be the base for PCSO Colin Abbotts when he holds his police surgery and also be hired out to groups, generating income for the library.

Coun King told the Free Press that Lincolnshire County Council (LCC) has agreed in principle to do the structural changes to the building - opening an access from the library - while volunteers "are more than happy to wield a paintbrush".

She said: "They (LCC) have got to do a structural survey but, in principle, they have said yes.

"Ever since we took the library on we have wanted more space."

Currently children's craft events are held when the library is closed to the public but the extra room will allow them to be staged at any time.

Coun King said space to hold meetings in the village has reduced since the Royal British Legion Social Club closed at the start of the year.
