In December 2013 on the petition website, change.org appeared a new item; – “Petitioning City and County of Swansea” > “Keep Pennard Library Open“.
Started by Arthur Rogers, of Pennard, United Kingdom, and with the byline “Pennard Library is a well loved and important resource. It holds many school classes, IT classes. Groups encouraging reading and helping people back to work. As the only library on our peninsula, it is imperative that it is kept open.” the Petition has (to date) gained 142 supporters.
09 DEC 2013 The “Save Pennard Library” campaign takes to Facebook
Save Pennard Library campaign (on Facebook)
First created on 9 December 2013 (just after hearing the devastating news that the City & County of Swansea (our Local Authority) was proposing to close Pennard Library at the end of the financial year 2013/2014 (unless the Community came forward with a proposal for running the service themselves), the “Save Pennard Library” campaign started on Facebook was “For everyone who wants to save Pennard Library from closure as it stands now! We will NOT accept a downgrade to our current service.“
Still going strong at https://www.facebook.com/savepennardlibrary the page currently has had (as at April 2014) some 653 ‘Likes’, and so the site, those who have posted messages, and everyone who has clicked the ‘Like’ button, are to be congratulated and thanked for getting (and keeping) the Pennard Library situation firmly in place.
