Petition update

Tinsley Carnegie library

Oct 20, 2020 — 

Tinsley Carnegie library is now the second oldest building remaining in Tinsley after St Lawrence Church, however unlike the church, it's intended purpose has been ignored by those that own it. 

The name Tinsley derives from the old English "Tings Leah", meaning 'field of council', a place where justice was served by learned scholars. Reference to the village is included within the Domesday Book.

A free library such as Tinsley Carnegie Library represents infinite learning opportunities, something which modern day Tinsley desperately needs given the current educational attainment in the area. 

As well as signing and sharing the petition, there is also the chance to submit a question at the next Sheffield Council Children, Young People and Families scrutiny committee on 19th November asking for the library to be reinstated to benefit children and families in the area, questions can be submitted to scrutiny@sheffield.gov.uk
