Save Burnage Library

Burnage library opened in 1974, replacing the previous, fire damaged library. Since then, it has provided the community with an essential service for learning and leisure and has maintained a central position in the community as other council services have eroded over the years.

Locally, it is the last surviving public council facility, which provides an essential resource for young and old alike and we are fighting to stop its merciless closure. Please lend your support our campaign and help keep Burnage library open!

Campaign meetings are public and take place at Burnage Community Centre on Wednesday evenings, 6pm - 8pm until the decision on the consultation on the 17th April 2013.

Alternatively, sign the petitions at the health centre, library and other outlets and don't forget to like our Facebook page at:

Pop-up Library Event

“Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.” 
― John Green

It's official! The Save Burnage Library Campaign will be joining other libraries from around the city at the pop-up public library in Albert Sq, Saturday 30th March 2013 between 1pm and 3pm. 

The event will feature book swapping. So if you have books that you have finished reading and not need any more, bring them along and swap your book with someone who may have something you might fancy perusing :-)

If you have any capacity to help, please arrive earlier and bring with you:
  • cardboard, paper, fabric - anything that can be decorated and pegged to the 'building'. 
  • Markers, paint, crayons, etc.
  • Banners, signs, the usual petitions.
  • Of course not forgetting: Books!

Please support our campaign and inform your neighbours and the local community by clicking on the poster below and printing the picture in full.

Once you have printed it, please give these out to neighbours; stick them to the inside window of your house; print smaller versions to stick to the inside of your car; put them on community noticeboards; hand them out to shops and anything else you think would benefit from it. 

Thank you all for your continuing support of the campaign!
