Restore Kapiti Coast Library's Book Buying Budget!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

The KCDC Mayor and Councillors have slashed the new book buying budget by almost HALF ( Down from $402,500 to $211,000.) There was no consultation. There was no warning. This is $5.06 per year per library member. In comparison Wellington spends $25.91 per member. 

Over 80% of Kapiti residents are members of our libraries. That is 41,000 out of 52,000 people. This is the highest in NZ. We are all proud of that.The Mayor and Councillors have previously said they are there for the health and well being of the community.Yet they cut resources for the most important council facility that achieves this.

As a result of the severe cuts a broad based action group ROBB (RESTORE OUR BOOK BUDGET) has been set up.Support the petition. It seeks :

1. Immediate reversal of the recent funding cut
2. Proper funding for new library acquisitions.
3. A commitment to increase funding levels at least to the equivalent of Wellington within 3 years
