Save Summertown Library

We the undersigned petition the council to abandon its plan to close the public library in Summertown

Summertown library is a valuable community resource, used by young and old alike, which not only encourages reading and learning, by providing books, magazines and newspapers, but also provides computer access and dvd hire. It is also the site of the Turrill Sculpture Garden which is a unique area of art, peace and calm available to the whole community.

This library is an essential amenity; part of our community heritage, and it should not be closed. We ask the Council to reconsider its plans and find savings elsewhere.

The petition was made available to councillors as part of the early comments on the emerging library proposals. These were made available before the Cabinet meeting in January that made recommendations to Council for the budget. The petition will also be considered again alongside responses to any formal consultation process in relation to the library proposals
