Stop Cuts to Lismore's Libraries!

Lismore Council has made the short-sighted decision to cut nearly $80,000 p.a from their library budget!

Lismore Council's $80,000 worth of cuts will result in reduced opening hours for Lismore City Library, the closure of Goonellabah Library on Wednesdays and the sacking of student book shelvers.

It’s disgraceful that Lismore Council has seen libraries as a soft target in their cost-cutting endeavours, rather valuing libraries as asset for the whole community, especially families with children, students and retirees.

Sign our petition calling on Lismore Mayor, Isaac Smith to reverse these irrational cuts that will impact on local public libraries!

A community gathering to oppose the cuts to local library services is planned for 11am on 26th May outside Goonellabah Library.

 

Will you sign?
