The Future for Kent’s Libraries

There will be a PUBLIC MEETING: ‘What future 4 Kent’s libraries?’ in Whitstable on FRIDAY 15th May (10.30am to 12 Noon).

It will be at St Peters Church in Sydenham Street and all Kent’s library users/supporters are invited.

Author & Library Campaigner, Alan Gibbons, will be the guest speaker. KCC Leader, Paul Carter, has been invited to send a representative. Free including tea/coffee.

This will be an opportunity to share library stories and have a say in what should happen next now that the KCC consultation and the ‘Save our public libraries’ petition have closed and we await responses from Kent County Council.
