Campaign to save Strood Library

83 Signatures Goal: 2,000

We, the undersigned, believe that Strood's popular Library should remain on its present large, custom-built Bryant Rd site and not be moved to a smaller rented retail unit at 133 High St.
A town centre library will have many disadvantages such as heavy vehicular traffic passing the front doors of the proposed site, the loss of the free car parking provided at the existing site, and will also be far less family-friendly than the current library which is in a heavily residential area with many schools on its doorstep.
Additionally the High St shop is currently used by the Strood Community Project, a local charity that delivers vital services for disadvantaged people of all ages. The loss of the shop is a threat to the continuing success of the charity.

    The allocated spend could be put to much better use to benefit the local community and in times of osterity. Why spend public money on a new Library when one already exists? Why spend public money on something the people in the local community are happy with the service the Library already offers? Why oust a much loved hub that is Strood Community Project, run by and serving local people? If the want to enhance Strood the develop the old Civic centre site, a cafe` or too, some small local businesses and make Strood a place to visit, a real extension of Rochester, with great views, a place to actually sit by our lovely river. Please listen to the people, it is our money you are spending!

    Why moving a perfect positioned and equipped
    Library to a place and destroy a community charity
    that was helping so many people & youth in the area!
    WHY?that is my question to the council that once again is making
    big mistakes and is careless about people and local
    Residents! Get a life counsellors and start getting
    out your ivory tower and see what is really needed
    and necessary in the community: please Wake up!
