Join the Stroud Library demo

The demo will take place at 1.45pm outside the Drop In "consultation" session at Stroud Library on Monday 20th December. People will be collecting signatures for the petition. I can't be there but urge people to make their views known. I believe the changes proposed clearly take us further away from kind of society we would like to live in.

You can also see the latest info about the battle to save our libraries at the Friends of Gloucestershire Libraries: www.foclibrary.wordpress.com They have lots of great info include a video here and a copy of my letter that got into local papers today (although edited to make it shorter) - see full letter here.

“I fully support the Friends of Gloucestershire Libraries campaign against such horrendously damaging cuts to the library service. Welcoming, well-stocked and staffed libraries are absolutely essential to any civilised community.” Message of support to Friends of Glos Libraries from Children’s Laureate, Anthony Browne.

Meanwhile I have still been seeking info as to how District Councillors will be consulted about the library changes and also I have queried some aspects of the consultation process - no details yet.

I note that I have received quite a number of emails of support for my letter to the press - this issue does seem to be touching people.

This attack on our libraries is unacceptable - we must fight this cut
