On 5 November, a national demonstration is planned in London to protest against the cuts in funding to libraries and museums.
The Save Swindon’s Libraries group and Cllr Jane Milner-Barry who represents Old Town and East Wichel have both been calling for residents of Swindon to show their support and join them in the capital to protest.
Cllr Milner-Barry said: “If you live in Swindon you will know how desperate the situation is with eleven of our fifteen libraries due for closure next year. Libraries are an incredibly valuable resource in so many ways and we can’t afford to lose them. Please get to the demonstration if you possibly can.”
A coach is being provided by the Save Swindon’s Libraries group with tickets available through their Facebook page: www.facebook.com/saveswindonslibraries
