Read-In at Bungay Library | 5th Feb, 10am

Next Saturday is Save Our Libraries Day.


Obviously this national day of action now has particular resonance in Bungay and many other Suffolk communities. After discussions with a few of the groups that use the library and with the librarians themselves it has been decided that we too should organise a ‘read-in’ to demonstrate support for our library and the fantastic job our professional librarians do.

All you need to do is turn up and read!

There are a few other things you can do too:

Got less than 2 minutes?
Tell your neighbours – or you could just pop the poster for the 5th up in your window (download here). Fill in the form (below) and tell us why Bungay Library is important to you. Tweet this page (using the button at the bottom of the page) using the hashtag #savelibraries or share this page on your Facebook profile.

Got 2 minutes?
Visit the Suffolk libraries website and use the online reference resources.

5– 10 minutes?
Contact all your friends and family, ask them to join the library and use library services on the 5th.

10 – 15 minutes?
Email or write to Peter Aldous our local MP the local press or the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport about the unique contribution public libraries make to society.

15 – 30 minutes?
Pop down to Bungay library on the 5th. Borrow as many books as you can. While you are there have a look at the community garden, read a newspaper, go online and find out what’s happening in your local community.
