Sefton Libraries are "non-essential"? Or are they?

'The bulk' of council services in Sefton - including libraries, childrens' and social services - could soon be opened-up to profiteering, according to an article in today's Daily Post. Another alternative being presented is that "non-essential" services such as libraries (apparently) should close. You see, there just isn't enough dosh to go round.

But of course, we don't want closures, do we? 'If opening the services up to profit is the only way to save them, so be it', is the last line of the letter we're supposed to write to the Echo.

There Is An Alternative! Organise in our workplaces to challenge and defeat the system which dictates that things are only "essential" if a few quid can be made out of them.

In other news, Sefton's council tax bill is set to rise by 4.25% in April.
