Stop the closure of Desborough Library

Stop the closure of Desborough Library

Stop the proposed plan to close Desborough and Rothwell libraries

Why is this important?

The library is an important part of the community providing a gathering place for people of all ages. Providing activities for children of all ages and space for other groups.

Removal of the library will also make it difficult for many people to gain access to books in the community of Desborough.

It is also a vital access point to the council for many people with restricted mobility due to the help desk


Reasons for signing

  • Rothwell and Desborough libraries are a vital part of the community.
  • Desborough library is a beautiful place and the heart of our lives. A multi used library and loved by all ages, it offers so many services as well as being a safe and comfortable meeting place for the elderly and tiny children. It's a traditional profession that needs supporting and saving. I could not see life without it. Even considering such a terrible thing is disastrous and unbelievable. It must be saved.
  • These are not books,lumps of lifeless paper,but are minds alive on the shelves-Gilbert Highet. Simple.All should have access to books .
