Recently, Bromley Council announced that Bromley Community Links, a local organisation who for all intents and purposes seem to have little specific industry expertise and appear to be a Jack of all trades and a master of none, will be responsible for replacing paid, professional labour with unpaid volunteers. This has the potential to lead to the destruction of Bromley’s library service which is a lifeline to some vulnerable members of the community.
In response to this announcement, the campaign to save Bromley libraries has been gaining a lot of momentum, which has seen members of Bromley Unite the Union participating in further strike action, taking to the streets in a march through Bromley and spending many mornings handing out leaflets and petitions.
With further events being planned, this is a vital time to stand up and support Bromley’s library service. Now more than ever, please do all you can to support the campaign.
