Stand Up For Southend Libraries!

Stand Up for Southend Libraries – New campaign group launched

A new Facebook group – Stand Up For Southend Libraries – has been set up start campaigning to defend our local library service.

Please join the group and the campaign! here’s their statement:

“Southend-on-Sea Borough Council has proposed to reduce the provision of libraries in the borough to only 3 being staffed by paid employees. Under these proposals Friars and Thorpedene libraries will close to make way for a ‘hub’ library and either Kent Elms or Leigh will remain as another ‘hub’. Southchurch, Westcliff and either Leigh or Kent Elms will be offered to the community to run… with no plans if there is no uptake. This group is for residents, library users and union members who wish to stand up for Southend Libraries. It will be updated with news, events and campaign developments as together we try to ensure that the future of Southend’s Libraries is to provide a high quality service delivered by paid and knowledgeable council staff.”
