It's the final month of a consultation into the possible closure of seven libraries in Bristol.

The city's council say they need to make changes to save money. They're also looking at extending opening times at some other libraries.

People across the city have been protesting against the closures. Final decisions will be made in August after the consultation ends on June 30th.

Last month more than a hundred protestors joined a march against the closure of the Wick Road Library.

More than a hundred protesters joined a march this morning to try to stop a council-run library from closing in Bristol.

The Save Wick Road Library campaigners organised the walk to show how important the service is to the local community. A public consultation on the future of the service finishes next month.
