Hands Off Our Libraries

Northamptonshire County Council is consulting the public on 3 options of cuts and closures to our public libraries.

We are rejecting their options, proposing Option 4 instead: to keep ALL of our libraries open, in permanent public ownership and operated by properly trained staff.

Option 4: Libraries 4 Life

Libraries are important places for our communities, and they host a whole range of community services.

Our County Council is considering three options that all make cuts to library services. The options include closing some libraries and/or moving them out of public ownership.

We are saying that there should be a fourth option, and are calling on residents to support it:

Option 4: Keep ALL of Northamptonshire’s libraries properly funded, in permanent public ownership, with professionally trained staff to provide a comprehensive and efficient library service for the benefit of all in the area that want to make use of it.
