AN author has launched a campaign to save his village library.

Wakefield Council will meet at the end of the month to determine the future of Crofton Community library.

The library - which serves 6,000 people and four schools - could be axed as part of a council savings review of more than half a million pounds.

And now author and Crofton resident Jonathan Pile wanst people to invites people to sign an e-petition to save the library from clousres

Mr Pile said: “This is one of the most well loved, best run and cost effective local libraries in the country.

“As a local author - I have personally found the library a brilliant local hub of information which I feel the community will sadly miss.”

The petition has already been backed and signed by all of Crofton’s local councillors.

Mr Pile said: “Hopefully the library will be saved but we want to get as many people to sign the petition as possible.”
