A protest was held in Newcastle today against plans to close ten libraries across the city.
Newcastle city council, which owns the libraries, made the proposal as part of plans to cut more than £100m from its long term budget.
The public are now being asked for their thoughts. It says savings have to be made after severe cuts in the council's budget by the government but protestors say library services are vital.
