"People are very, very disappointed and very, very annoyed," he said.
"This came as a kind of bombshell during the week when it was announced by the chief executive officer that the Central Library in Sligo Town was to be closed as and from next Tuesday.
"There was a protest organised by Impact, there was a huge turnout there."
