On Tuesday 22nd September 2009, North Somerset Council will be discussing the proposal to save funds by closing the public library in Congresbury. We, the undersigned, believe that the library is an invaluable and essential resource for our community. The library in Yatton is not a viable alternative because it is too far for all but the very fittest to walk to, and there is no regular public transport service in place to make the journey there and back. We value our library and we deserve it. Therefore, we respectfully request that North Somerset Council support the continued existence of our library in Congresbury.
