    Story

    Aberdeen's Libraries are under threat due to an emergency cost cutting exercise by Aberdeen City Council. The damage to the community and the loss of jobs will be permanent unless something is done know.

    We are building a consortia to save :

    Ferry Hill
    Cults
    Tillydrone
    Bridge Of Don

    And then develop a strategy to save the rest.

    Libraries - a listening ear, a friendly face, internet cafe, reading room, family history research centre, children's storytelling circle, home of Bookbug, emergency source when uni library books are out, reference desk, exhibition space, reminiscence centre, quiet place, fun place, USED BY THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY! LEAVE THEM BE!
