Campaign launched to keep Workington library open (UK)

Campaign launched to keep Workington library open (UK)"Moorclose library is one of 20 in the county to have been put on an at-risk list by Cumbria County Council. But independent councillor Denis Robertson, who lives in the ward, has vowed to fight "tooth and nail" to save the facility from closure. And he urged fellow residents not to let it become another victim of the cuts. "This library is a real part of the community and I do not want it to fall by the wayside," said Mr Robertson, an Allerdale Borough councillor. "A lot of people use our library, I use it myself. It's not just books, you can get films and all sorts and it's a meeting place for a lot of people who wouldn't otherwise see each other. It's also handy for all the local schools. We won’t sit back and watch it close." Moorclose is one of 11 libraries in west Cumbria currently under threat"
