Join library and save it!

In reply Mr Magurk (May 24) who queried the number of residents in Bromley Cross.

The petition of 4,000 signatures was an excellent proportional response from a population of 13,411 (2001 census).

Whilst the future use and siting of libraries is being discussed by council and the people of Bolton, I question the feasibility of libraries in schools, particularly as many of them are now gated and secured.

The link to education and learning is important, but libraries now offer a wide range of activities to many different sections of the community, including companionship and fun.

I would urge people to join their local library. A positive step toward safeguarding these vital institutions for present and future generations is to create a demand for them.

By the joining of hands we formed a human chain around Bromley Cross Library on Thursday.
