Libraries are undergoing both a consultation on the future of libraries and a staff restructure (why are these not part of same program Lambeth?!) and Lambeth’s library workers and librarians are opposed to the huge cuts proposed by the council – staff cuts, reduced opening hours, de-professionalisation of librarians, possible closures, “community trusts” (cuts with glossy image?) and more.
How can you help? 4 things to do this week!
Step 1: Sign our new petition (direct with Lambeth):
Step 2: Join us on Wednesday 11 May, 6pm at the town hall & lobby your democratic representatives!
Step 3: Contact your councillor and demand they oppose all cuts in libraries. Find your councillor and email them using the Lambeth website. Copy in Cllr Florence Nosegbe firstname.lastname@example.org (the councillor responsible for libraries & running the consultation).
Step 4: Spread the word! Email you friends and colleagues, post this to your Facebook (link below) and tweet us (again tweet button below, @SaveLambthlibs and @LambethSOS) and get them to do the same.
