Do not close or re-locate any of the Libraries in Lancashire

Why is this important?

Libraries like my own in Kirkham are an active and much-needed resource, with users ranging in age from the very young to the very elderly. A dedicated and professional library service is a must in any civilised society and the scale of cuts proposed to Lancashire's library facilities are unacceptable.

Libraries in Lancashire do more than just provide books. They have regular reading and dedicated events for children, active creative writing groups, web-based learning sessions, book clubs, additional clubs, poetry readings and a variety of library-based activities that cannot be undermined nor shifted to an inappropriate location.

Access to a "comprehensive and efficient" library service is covered under the 1964 Public Libraries and Museums Act, with additional elements located in the 1998 Human Rights Act and 2010 Equality Act.
