We are campaigning to support Birmingham’s community libraries, which are under threat in the current review of local services by Birmingham City Council, which is seeking to make substantial cuts to all of its budgets. We will be holding leafleting sessions at individual libraries to raise public awareness, and there will be a reading of relevant extracts from The Public Libraries and Museums Act 1964. This is the legislation which imposes a duty on local authorities to provide adequate and accessible library services.
The first stop in this campaign is this Saturday, 2 April, at Kents Moat Library from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The library is at 55-57 Pool Way, Birmingham B33 8NF.
The nearest rail station is Lea Hall, next nearest is Stechford.
Bus services are 59, 59A, 70, 71, 72, 97, 97A, 99.
Do come. If you would be interested in helping at a similar session at your local library, please let us know.
