Save Northamptonshire's Public Libraries

Please don't close any of the public libraries in Northamptonshire.

Why is this important?

Up to 28 of the County's 36 libraries will be closed if the council's plans go ahead. Libraries are vital to information, reading and research, children's learning, ideas and educational facilities for everyone. They are centres of communities. The public library is the place where children love to choose their own book. They learn to enjoy reading which is one of life's most rewarding pleasures.

Reasons for signing

  • To loose a library is to loose a realm of imagination. This indefensible position will see thousands deprived of the means of enjoyment, fulfillment and thanks to the savagery of Tory benefit requirements and sanction threats, an necessity of hundreds of hours of job searching, the means of subsistence.
  • Because Wayne Smith asked me and I like books.
  • We need to promote more reading not less
