Since ECC has said that they will continue to run any library which is not taken over, SOLE is asking anyone who has expressed interest in running a library to withdraw. So our 2nd question is Do you agree with our view on withdrawal of expressions of interest?

The revised strategy is asking community organisations to take over libraries & run them with only £18,000 of financial support spread across 3 years, & probably not in the same premises. We believe this is unsustainable & is a closure plan by stealth ...

We’ve sent 2 questions to all candidates: 1 Do you agree with our campaign for all Essex libraries to remain open as now with paid trained professional staff on site, computers for public use, plus books & other stock, supplied in the same way & to the same extent as hitherto?

For readers who are unaware - the ‘pledge’ also includes agreeing with the campaign’s view that all expressions of interest to take over a library should be withdrawn.

We must not allow the replacement of professional staff with volunteers. want volunteers to take over our libraries - do not allow it. The library services is a statutory service requiring paid and experienced staff.

Have you lost professional staff since the new strategy began - and thus are unable to cover this position?

At what other physical institution can you learn about virtually any topic? Where else are the homeless welcomed as equals, at least until they are not? And if libraries are microcosms of democracy, what does it mean if they are (sometimes) closed?

Are Volunteer run going to save what's left ? Closure by stealth and a planned land grab . Time for some honesty

Another essential reason why are wrong to try to replace professionally run libraries with community libraries. We need professional staff to help all library users and encourage at all ages.

The shamefully plans closure by stealth for its library services - after driving children onto the streets to stop them from closing 25. Stop the strategy and start to recruit more professional librarians - not volunteers.

We need full investment in all our libraries. have driven users away by neglecting our libraries, letting them fill up with weeds while reducing hours and emptying book shelves

Do not allow to push out professional library staff and replace them with volunteers - we need our professional staff for safety, sustainability, privacy and in order to have full local access to full library services! Stop closure by stealth
