We hope to have a 'reading relay' for children around the reading tree, weather permitting and readings inside the library.

The current paper petition is now closed. The total was: 2,374 signatures. Thank you to everyone who was involved, particularly to Priscilla Goldby who set up the Crown News petition. Priscilla and I presented the petition to the Cabinet on Tuesday.
Letter Writing Campaign
Please write a letter to Keith Mitchell opposing the library cuts and bring it with you to the Read-In. We intend to post them en-masse after the event, at Headington Post Office. Supporters of Summertown library have mounted a similar campaign.
