There’s a new campaign taking off in Cornwall. Ten-year-old Leon has started a petition on Campaigns by You to stop library closures in Cornwall.
When Falmouth library cut its opening hours, Leon sprang into action to keep his favourite place – and other local libraries – open for all.
The more Cornwall residents who sign his petition, the clearer it will be to the Council that libraries are a valued local service that shouldn’t be cut. So if you agree, please sign the petition now.
“As an avid reader, it came as a shock to me that the opening hours of my local library were cut and were not seen as a priority for Cornwall Council – I think that these actions to cut the hours of the libraries should be halted immediately.
Libraries are the only places where you can get books for free and the books are varied and of good quality.
Please assist me in my quest to save Cornwall’s libraries. Sign this petition and help further by spreading the word.”
