Petition Handed In To Wokingham Council

Last night, Thursday 22nd, we handed in our 2,374 strong petition opposing the privatisation of Wokingham's libraries. 

Because the petition is over 1,500 signatures, according to the Council's own constitution, it should trigger a debate on the privatisation of our libraries at the next Council meeting (November 17th).

We'd like to thank everyone who signed and helped collect signatures. 

The next stage of our campaign will be more difficult. We now need to convince councillors to support us in the debate and oppose privatisation. You can help by telling them how you feel. Write to them at or find them on Wokingham Council's website at .
