In 6 weeks the council will be holding a consultation to decide on the fate of several tameside libraries, one of these will be our beloved west end library. So many people use and enjoy our library; oap’s learning it skills, local rainbows/brownie groups, kids and young adults using the quiet space to do their homework, parents and tots for the weekly ‘time for a rhyme’ and ‘stay and play’ sessions, 2 local schools frequently visit with classes of 30, during the school holidays the libraries fun craft sessions are a huge hit and always crammed with happy children. For the last several years the government has created schemes such as bookstart to encourage younger readers and they are now talking about a compulsory library card for every child to use in their local library, by taking away our local library they are depriving our children of an opportunity to begin and expand their reading skills and removing a massive community resource. Personally, i have wonderful memories of visiting this library as a toddler and now as a parent and childminder i go twice a week. Its a landmark memory and one i wish to continue for other children. Please help us save our library, we dont have much time. Thank you.
