Save Maryhill Library
During lockdown, Maryhill Library has, rightly, been closed. Now Glasgow Life has announced that it will not re-open.
Maryhill Library is a life-saver for some people in this community, one of the city’s most deprived. Children benefitted from story time and homework club. There is a writing group. The library is not a luxury, it is a necessity for so many of us: unemployed people, pensioners, young people, those who cannot afford to buy books and newspapers, people who do not own computers, people who just need a quiet, warm place where they can go to read, write or think. The staff are compassionate and supportive.
Maryhill Library has served the community for more than a century, and it must not be allowed to close now. Please sign this petition. And, if a petition is not enough, I suggest we take non-violent direct action and occupy the library to prevent it being used for any other purpose.
