End library austerity - secure revenue funding for public libraries in the Chancellor’s Budget

Great libraries strengthen people’s sense of pride in the place where they live, act as ‘anchor institutions’ on the High Street and promote inclusive economic growth as well as a demonstrable social ROI.

    We need public facilities/ amenities more than ever. Places where activities for all ages seem to be few and far between and my kids and i like the library. More funding could actually see more people using libraries for perhaps more uses

    Public Libraries are safe places for reading, relief of stress and improvement of livelihoods. They need be funded and be managed by professionals.

    The only way to keep our library open was to have volunteers run it, in partnership with the County Council Library Service. Our philosophy is that we’re running the library until the Council have money to reinstate Librarians again. We do an ok job, but we’re no replacement for professionals.
