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, 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.
We demand that Brent Council give adequate time and due consideration to alternatives plans to the closure of Preston Library, including the revision of proposals for the library at the Civic Centre.
We also oppose the sale or disposal of the Preston Library site for any redevelopment that does not include a public library for the use of local citizens.
We the undersigned ask Brent Council to keep Preston Library open and give full consideration to alternatives to the removal of essential local library services to the Preston ward under the Brent "Library Transformation Project".
We oppose the sale or redevelopment of the site that does not include a Brent public library.
The Save Preston Library petition to Brent Council was written by P Shah and is in the category Local Government at GoPetition.
