Save Willingham Library Campaign

Write to the County Councillor who has responsibility for libraries

Following the recent Library Service Review Willingham was identified as one of 13 smaller libraries being under threat of closure. If you value Willingham Library please write to the Cambridgeshire County Council portfolio holder for Libraries, Learning and Culture, Councillor David Harty at Shire Hall, Castle Hill, Cambridge CB3 0AP or email [email protected], to tell him how important the Library is to you personally, and also as a learning resource and hub for all the community, especially children and the elderly and those unable to drive. CCC will be taking a decision in September about the future of 13 libraries under threat, which includes Willingham.

Complete the brief questionnaire available at the library

We need to prepare for Willingham becoming a community-run library. The questionnaire asks for your views and gives an opportunity to volunteer to help. The questionnaire can also be downloaded here.

Hire Willingham Library for your club or meeting

We need to encourage more use of the Library Building during the hours that it is closed, not only to raise money but also to promote its use as a valuable community resource within the heart of the village. It can comfortably seat around 12 to 15 people, and has a small kitchen and a toilet. The hourly rate is £5.

And finally...  Use it!!! 

Willingham Library not only has books for borrowing, there is also a reference section and lots of local information about events and services. And if it doesn’t have the book you want, you can order it online from the huge Cambridgeshire libraries catalogue and pick it up at Willingham, free. The Library also provides a unique service for the community - free internet use, including access to a wide range of online reference works for which you would normally have to pay. Come in to find out more or go to www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/library.
