A community run library in Deeside is on the hunt for a replacement laser printer.

Trustees at the former council run library in Mancot are appealing to any local businesses or organisations which may have a spare printer they could donate.

The library was taken over by members of the community around two years ago after it was faced with closure by Flintshire County Council.

Local people got together to keep it open and after a lot of negotiation and hard work it is now run by a group of Trustees and a dedicated band of volunteers.

“The laser printer we inherited from the council when they handed over the library is now nearly on its last legs.” Trustee Ian Butler said.

Most of the money raised by the volunteers goes to pay for utilities, it means the library on Mancot Lane may have to lose a vital piece of equipment and is unable to pay for a new one.

Ian Butler added: “The free internet access that we provide is very popular but we are finding that our printer is now not producing a good enough quality print out.

As we rely completely on voluntary donations we are wondering if by chance, a local company could possibly donate an unused network colour printer to enable us to carry on with our service to the community.”
