Lincolnshire library to shut for good due to lack of funding 
The library at Wragby will shut later today as there are not enough funds to keep it open, volunteers who run it say once rent has been paid there is only £1,000 left to run it for the year.  Barbara Bartlett, one of the volunteers set up to run the library, said the decision to shut it was due to a lack of support from Lincolnshire County Council.
