Update on Petition Against Labour's Library Closure Plans

May 4, 2017 12:24 PM

As the lead petitioner, Lib Dem Campaigner Maggie Hird said, "I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has signed the petition and collected signatures to protest against Labour's plans to only have 4 of the 17 libraries remaining as part of the statutory service. The petition has now been handed in to the Council.

Due to the massive response to the Future of the Library Service in Derby 'Phase 2' Survey, at the end of last year, Library Service officers told councillors that it is going to take longer to process the information than was expected. Officers are aiming to have the report ready for Cabinet in April. If you want to volunteer to help run Mickleover Library, it's not too late. Contact Maggie Hird or Peter Barker on 01332 599995
