Save Reading libraries – Central, Palmer Park, Whitley and more

Reading Borough Council is proposing cutting library opening hours across the town. Palmer Park library, for example, is having its opening hours cut from 21 down to 15. This means it won't be open in the evening or at weekends.

We fear that this will result in less usage of our libraries and the council will eventually close some of them because they are not being used.

Libraries are a vital resources for the community. Many people use them to borrow books, read papers or attend Rhyme Time sessions. If the hours are cut we will all lose out.

We want the council to look again for a creative solution to preserve opening hours – evening and weekend opening for Palmer Park library for example.

Save Reading's libraries!
