Families who use a Sheffield library facing the axe have written letters explaining how they rely on the service.
Residents wrote of how the Walkley facility’s toddler group and internet access is a lifeline, and that they could not travel to other sites.
Their pleas will be handed to councillors as part of a protest against the planned closure of 16 city libraries.
Campaigners from across the city will meet outside Sheffield Town Hall at 1pm on Wednesday before a council debate on the closure of libraries in Greenhill and Totley.
Sheffield Council, which has said it needs to slash £1.6 million from its library budget by 2016, also plans to make centres ‘community-led’ or independent.
Consultation on the closures runs until Friday. n Visit www,sheffield.go.uk/libraries to have your say.
