Keep Ringmer Library open

We the undersigned petition the council to Keep Ringmer Library open. It is an important and well used community resource, costing less than £8000 a year. People use it to get books, to access the internet and get help with IT skills, to start children reading and sharing storytime sessions and as a community meeting place.

This library was built with money raised by the local community and was opened by the chair of the council just over a year ago. It is very cheap to run and enhances the lives of hundreds of people. The lending figures also buck the county reduction (-21%) by being just 2% less than the base year, despite a cut in opening hours of more than 10%. People need libraries to be local, not a bus ride or a car journey away.

This ePetition ran from 16/09/2017 to 05/12/2017 and has now finished.
