Ipswich: Marchers protest against library closures
Over 200 people from across Suffolk marched through the streets of Ipswich to protest over plans to close libraries in the county.
People of all ages joined in the protest on Saturday morning with youngsters dressed as characters from their favourite novels and others holding banners and signs.
The march began outside Suffolk County Council’s Endeavour House building and ended at Giles Circus with protestors walking through Northgate Library along the way.
At the end of the march author Nicci Gerrard made a speech and thanked the protestors for their efforts.
The council is currently consulting on plans which could see a number of libraries close, unless community groups take them on themselves, while the ones that remain could see services reduced or taken over by a private company.
