Hope for libraries in Kent

We’re sharing this message from the “Save our public libraries” campaign, Kent.

Until 8 April you can help HOPE for the future triumph austerity-excused cut & burn. There’s still time for you, family and friends to call for a publicly owned library to remain at the heart of each of the 99 proud communities across Kent which currently share our public “efficient & cost effective” library service!

If you haven’t yet:

1) Please read KCC’s consultation document: http://consultations.kent.gov.uk/consult.ti/lraconsultation/view?objectId=13951141#13951141

Decide whether it takes account of the extra costs of a Trust and the risks of an independent organisation outside democratic control (or its failure) then have your say: https://kentcc.firmstep.com/default.aspx/RenderForm/?F.Name=L3gz1GL5h8d&HideAll=1
