Cutting off the libraries?0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:12 pm

Today, many people were fighting to save their local library, including me!Cutting down on libraries

A few days ago, the council decided they would close 29 library’s in Oulton Broad, Bungay, Kessingland and Southworld. But their plans were changed dramatically during a public protest.  The protesters claimed this change was ‘marvelous’ but they still remained wary about the council’s plans.

In the picture, you can see Oulton Broads library! My local library infact. I’ve been in there a few times, it’s pretty good I must admit! I saw the protest myself, It lasted quite long! One campaigner said: ” It’s great news. I don’t think its the end of the story though. It feels like a temporary expedient.” 

The council said ”We know our libraries are important but we cannot fund them. It cost’s £2.4 million to fund these…”  I guess it does cost quite abit to run these libraries but still, our community’s like the libraries! Its a double sided argument really. Below will be some quotes from the mums who go to these libraries!

”There value cannot be measured in financial terms. Its not about profits; it is what they give to the local community.” 
”Our libraries are very important for our children’s education, this is why we should keep them. If we do not keep them, the education of our children will drop.”
”Our library is the hub of our village!

What do you think about this? Is the council right or is the villagers right?
