Friends of Gloucestershire Libraries 

Location: UK » South West » GL

Friends of Gloucestershire Libraries has been fighting 43% cuts to our library services since November 2010. We have had overwhelming support from local people, submitted a 15,000 signature petition, and held a co-ordinated day of protest at every library in the county.

We have regularly been in the local and national press and have received a lot of support from public figures and celebrities.

Alas, all of this has been in vain and Gloucestershire County Council has ignored the public’s wishes and blocked us the whole way. They are intent on withdrawing services from our poorest communities.

A legal challenge has now been launched and a judicial review hearing takes place on 7th of July.
