Sobering Map of Libraries Threatened with Closure in the UK + News of a National Day of Protest

This is a map of all of all the libraries in the UK that are threatened with closure. The impact that the coalitions cuts are set to have on our public library service is shocking and Gloucestershire County Council plans are contributing to this devastation.

   See the larger map for more details of the libraries at threat.

The Author and Library Campaigner Alan Gibbons has called for a coordinated national day of action to protest to save our libraries on 5th February 2011. As it is not just our local library service that faces disproportionate and ill-thought out cuts but the wider public library service network of the UK, Friends of Gloucestershire Libraries will be taking part in this day of protest to not only raise the profile of the plight of Gloucestershire Libraries but also the plight of the public library services as a whole.  Please keep an eye on this blog for details. If anyone wants to be involved in organising or contributing to this event or has any ideas please do email us at foc.cheltlib@gmail.com.

If we do not shout for libraries now we will lose them for ever!
