More details from petition creator

Boyn Grove Library is well used, and well located, and is vital to residents in Boyn Hill, Pinkneys Green and Belmont. It therefore has a high level of book borrowing according to RBWM itself:

https://rbwm.moderngov.co.uk/documents/s34276/2021-01-12%20Library%20Transformation%20Strategy%20Cabinet%20Report.pdf

It is well used by Dementia and Learning Disability groups, and has excellent parking access, unlike the central library. The decision to remove Town Hall parking has made this local accessibility all the more important.

The site is also used by School groups, and is used out of hours by the community. It is a vital community space.

Local libraries are important places for learning about RBWM services, with fantastically helpful and informed staff, whose jobs are now it seems at risk. This would be a tragic loss of expertise in the Borough.

Access to books, education, culture and information is the cornerstone of services that Council tax should provide.

We therefore petition the Council to remove Boyn Grove Library from the list of proposed library closures.
