We successfully resisted proposed library cuts

 

FORE sent a sent a deputation to Haringey council cabinet once more, this time on February 14th. Under consideration were proposed library cuts and the result of the recent online survey.

At this meeting, FORE made a successful plea to reverse the decision to cut library opening hours and staff.

Out of 140 responses to the online consultation, 73 said libraries should not be touched and a further 23 said this would disadvantage vulnerable groups.

This outcome shows the power support groups can have when working together.

Note: FORE (Friends of Reading and Education) coordinates Haringey-wide library support groups, including us – the Highgate Library Action Group.
