Bentham Library - Protest Walk From Bentham to Settle - 7 May 2011

Save North Yorkshire Libraries is a campaign which aims to keep open all local libraries in the N. Yorks area.  

Campaigners accept that some changes may have to be made, but are urging the North Yorks County Council to find ways to deliver library services throughout the county. They are at pains to stress that they do not wish to see one library saved at the expense of another.

 At present, they are working with Andrew Jones MP, the Conservative MP for Harrogate and Knaresborough to promote  petitions in support of two libraries in his constituency, Bilton and Starbeck.

Elsewhere in the region, they are planning a protest walk on 7 May 2011, which will involve participants walking from Betham Library to it`s equivalent in Settle. The route will be along a mixture of roads and local footpaths, which sounds thoroughly enjoyable.
