SAVE Kessingland Library! That was the rallying call this week as a series of public meetings was organised to discuss its future.
The meetings, being held next week at the library/cafe at Marram Green, in Hall Road, have been organised to consider ways in which the library can be saved from closure, according to a spokesman for the parish council.
They will be held on Thursday, March 24 at 7pm and Thursday, March 31 at 3.30pm.
A meeting will also be incorporated into the Big Read- in event on Saturday, March 26 between 11am and 1pm,
“Everyone who is interested in trying to keep the library open is urged to come along to at least one of these events,” said the spokesman.
Kessingland Parish Council also confirmed this week that it was working with other parish councils in the catchment area and local people to collate ideas that could be submitted to the county council as part of its public consultation process on the future of Suffolk’s libraries.
“These events will also be an opportunity for local residents and users of the library to put forward ideas and suggestions that can form part of the village response,” the spokesman added.
BOOK-lovers who do not want Oulton Broad Library to close are being invited to an open meeting next week.
The session to discuss Suffolk County Council’s plans to cut its funding will take place at the Bridge Road library at 10.30am on Tuesday.
Pauline Rainton, one of the organisers, said: “We want to give others the opportunity to speak out in support of the library.
“We hope to arrange a campaign to keep the library going.”
