Government to step up and realise libraries are NEEDED !!!!!
This petition had 7 supporters
As Goverment has withdrawn more and more funding from local authorities, every dept in each local authority has had to make changes and cuts, but it seems libraries have become the 'easy' targets!!
I put it to Theresa May to safe guard libraries, to understand that libraries are a place for;
a) people to access computers for information (gov.uk/nhs/nhschoices,etc)
b) people to learn how to use a computer through learnmyway.com
c) a point of contact for many reasons (inc one of my customers who can't read or write and came to the library for help)
d) staff to encourage a love of reading to children and keep them 'hooked' so their vocabulary and knowledge of literature continues through the ages
e) the elderly who come to a library for social contact, whether it be to talk with the staff or talk with other customers
f) for people who don't no where else to turn so they go to their local library for help...
I could list a million reasons.....all i can say is the day libraries are no longer part of our culture, we can kiss good bye to a good part of our English Hertiage.......
