The Campaign

This is a blog for Save Doncaster Libraries, a campaign set up at the beginning of 2010 to challenge the proposed closures of branches of the Doncaster Libraries Service.

Changed priorities ahead road signWe believe:

  • Libraries are a vital part of Doncaster communities
  • The closure of library branches is counterproductive to the aims of Doncaster Council and harmful to the communities they are in
  • Doncaster deserves improved library services rather than reduced services

We are working hard to prevent the proposed closures, but we can’t do it without you. This blog has been set up to keep you up to date with the situation, let you know about upcoming events and what you can do to help.

So far we have:

  • Held a very successful Read-In at Warmsworth Library
  • Given a presentation about the value of libraries, the history of problems in the Doncaster Library Service and the campaign to the Cantley and Bessacarr forum
  • Publicised the campaign on Facebook
  • Contacted MPs, councillors and authors about the proposed closures and asked for their support
  • Started a petition against the proposed closures

What else should we do? Comment or send an email to Save Doncaster Libraries and give us your ideas!
