Save Highbridge Library
The County Council want to close Highbridge Library. They are putting forward two options:
Provide library services either by local people running the library, or by outreach e.g. using internet work stations, using other venues.

You can comment on these options by going to and filling in the County Council’s consultation before June 13th. Paper copies are also available at any library. You will also find background information on the website.

We believe Highbridge Library should stay open. We believe its usage is low because its hours have been cut to only 9.5 a week and it has limited facilities. In addition we believe Highbridge has particular needs for a library.
• Highbridge has high rates of child poverty – 35.66% after housing costs are taken into account.
• A high proportion of adults have no qualifications – 21.3% in 2011 census.
• Only 36% of people have access to the internet.
• There will be a big population increase in the next 10 years, 1291 houses expected to be built, with a new Primary school.

Access to a library is essential and we believe the library should stay and it should have trained staff.

If we are to get the County Council to change its mind we need evidence that people want the library to remain. Please take a few minutes to fill in this survey. To do so, just put a mark in the box alongside any statement that applies.
