Save Preston Library 

Location: UK » London » HA

We oppose the closure of Preston Library, a cost-efficient local service
that is well used by all the local community.

It provides essential facilities for some of our community, particularly
senior citizens and those with limited mobility, schoolchildren, and the
unemployed and others who may not have access to a computer.

Preston Library service is more accessible and meets the needs of a greater
number of local people than would a multimillion-pound mega-library at
Wembley Stadium, to which many users would find it difficult to travel.

Brent libraries, once closed, will be closed forever. Alternatives have not
been explored. The council is failing to cut inefficiencies and unnecessary
spending, preferring to axe 50% of libraries.

The Brent Executive (Labour) voted unanimously to close 6 libraries on April
11th. 10,000 people signed petitions to reject closure. 82% of those
consulted rejected closure.

Preston Library Campaign has joined forces with Brent SOS LIbraries (Save
Our Six Libraries) to fight these unnecessary and damaging cuts.
