The decision by the Tory and UKIP City Council to close over half our city's libraries is deeply worrying and will deprive communities across our city of vital community hubs, safe spaces to read and surf the internet.
Labour strongly opposes these library cuts and we've been on the streets fighting them.
The Herald has been covering our campaign to save 10 libraries in Plymouth closely. That's good because closing libraries affects our entire city whether you are a regular book borrower or not. Plymouth only has 17 libraries and the council is trying to close 10 of them.
This weekend Labour volunteers were out across the city campaigning to protect our libraries from these cuts.
Whether you are a Labour voter or not we need your help to save our libraries. Can you sign the petition on the change.org website - simply search on the site for Plymouth Libraries. Join the facebook campaign page here
