Save Our Libraries campaign launched
Wokingham Borough Council has announced plans to award the library services’ contract to a private company in May 2012.
In response, Rachelle Shepherd-DuBey and Anthony Vick have announced the formation of a ‘Save Our Libraries’ campaign and are inviting anybody interested to contact them.
Rachelle Shepherd-DuBey said: “I am appalled by the thought of companies making a profit out of libraries. Libraries should be for the benefit of residents not city sharks.
“I am worried that the only way private companies can make a profit will be to close libraries and increase charges to residents.”
Anthony Vick said: “Anyone who wants to get involved in our Save Our Libraries campaign can contact us firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our website at http://save-our-libraries.blogspot.com. We will need volunteers to organise petitions and other events at libraries, but as a start you can sign out petition athttp://tinyurl.com/WBCLibraries.”
