National Library Read-In Day


Local author, Meg Kingston, showed her support for Chepstow Library on Saturday 5th February as part of a National Day of protests against library closures across the country.  She encouraged the majority of customers in the library to sign a petition in support of the local library.

 Read-in events were organised all over Wales in protest against planned library closures and to demonstrate public support for the services provided by libraries. 

Meg encouraged people to visit their local library, register if they hadn’t already done so, take out books and show their support in any way they can.
