Another voice of support for Sutton Coldfield Library Service


We’re very grateful to Leila Rasheed for her support of our campaign. If you’d like to join her in supporting our compaign, here are some things you can do right now:

  • Sign the petitions against the proposed library closure if you haven’t already done so. There are two petitions online and two further (paper) petitions being run by Unison and the local Liberal Democrats which you may come across when you are in Sutton town centre…/keep-library-services-open-i……

  • Fill out the city council consultation document at…/communi…/consult_view
  • Write a letter to any of the local newspapers voicing your concern about the library proposals. If you’ve got kids, you could ask them to write a letter.
