Save our Libraries

Labour-run City of York Council have announced plans for library cuts totalling £600,000 over the next two years.

Whilst they do not say how these cuts would be achieved, their sheer scale mean this would only really be possible through library closures, reduced opening hours and/or staff redundancies.

York's 15 local libraries are a key part of what makes York such a great place to live. York bucked the national trend of short-sighted library closure – we can’t let the Council undo a decades long fight to protect York’s libraries.

Please sign our petition calling for a rethink on these proposed cuts.
