A public meeting is to be held next week about proposals to transform Cambridgeshire's library service.
Our group is anxious about Cambridgeshire County Council plans that could see a charitable trust take over the running of library services in the county, as well as increased use of volunteers at branches.
We are encouraging residents to attend a public meeting about the proposals at 7pm on Wednesday, February 2, at Arbury Community Centre in Campkin Road, Cambridge. People will also be invited to register their interest in joining FOAL at the meeting.
Separately, we plan to join other groups across the country for a Read-In on Saturday, February 5, from 2-3pm at Arbury Court Library. This national day of action will see people all over the country demonstrating their support for their libraries by showing up to their local branches and quietly reading - and you don't even need to bring a book: the library has plenty.
