New E-Petition launched to save all Oxfordshire's Libraries
We the undersigned petition the council to reconsider the proposal to close twenty public libraries in and around Oxfordshire.
The proposal from the County Council is sudden and without consultation. It was not mentioned at any local government election as an official policy. Many county councillors and a large section of the public oppose it. We believe that the County actually has an obligation to provide libraries for the community and this is a matter of spending priorities. The amount of money saved by closing all these libraries together is a tiny percentage of the County Council's overall budget.
