Please don't close our libraries in South Ham

Why is this important?

Libraries are really important places and are the heartbeat of local communities used by young and old for a variety of activities. Hampshire County Council plans will decimate library services across the Basingstoke. the library in South Ham is under threat of closure.

These plans are unimaginative, short-sighted and further undermine community life. Libraries are more than just buildings, they are community hubs; they help educate and bring the joy of reading and learning to all. Essential services like public computers are vital to those who cannot afford them at home, a vital service in view of the Governments push to access all essential services using the internet.
We call upon Hampshire County Council to rethink their closure plans .

Reasons for signing

  • Don't close South Ham library. We need it and the children need it. I use it as a teacher for resources and to take the children. Reading is so important for children as it impacts all other aspects of their learning.
  • I use it regularly and saves using car parks in the centre
  • Because it is an important place for everyone. Elderly go there to get out and socialise, to talk to others, which they may not otherwise be able to do.
