E-petition launched to save Headington Library
Friends of Bury Knowle Library launches petition to stop the closure of Headington's library situated in the grounds of Bury Knowle Park. Friends of Bury Knowle Library invites all users of Bury Knowle Library to sign the following e-petition:
We the undersigned petition the council to abandon its plan to close the public library in Bury Knowle Park, Headington.
This library is a much valued asset to the community and contributes in many ways to leisure and education. It is an essential amenity used and appreciated by a wide public. It is part of our community heritage. We demand more time to consider the options and explore alternative funding possibilities. We believe that if savings need to made they should be made elsewhere. The closure is not democratic as there has been no consultation or discussion during local elections.
