Mass book-out in Wiveliscombe

Friday afternoon saw another lively protest against the cutbacks to the library service in Wiveliscombe. A mass book-out, initiated by Kate Burrows and Friends of Wiveliscombe library, took place between 3 and 5pm. One campaigner, Jo Popp was dressed as a bag lady character in charge of a shopping trolley containing books, labelled ‘Wiveliscombe mobile library ‘ to represent the future of libraries in Somerset. Kate, armed with a megaphone and good humour personally addressed everyone passing by in the town, persuading those in doubt that they really should support our libraries.
