Embrace your local library!

There have been historic cuts and there will be more cuts to our libraries in Birmingham unless we do something about it.

Local libraries are at the heart of many communities and it needs people who use and value their local library to speak up for them.

We have seen a successful campaign, 4hglibrary, in Hall Green which has led to the District Committee deciding to make no cuts to Community libraries in their area.

Library users of Spring Hill library, which is threatened with closure, have met and are planning a local campaign.

Councillors are forced to take note when local people act to advocate for local services they value.

Action by local people in their communities across the city can stop cuts to vital public services.

What you can do?

The national Library campaign has published a really useful guide on setting up a Friends group which can be found here:
