Dozens of people have gathered outside Moulton Library in Northampton over planned cuts to County Council services.
£10 million pounds worth of cuts are on the table which could see 21 libraries handed over to community groups or closed.
Northamptonshire County Council says it doesn't get enough funding from the Government.
The County Council is set to approve starting a consultation on their budget saving plans.
It says unprecedented demand for local services along with a reduction in government funding mean the authority is facing severe financial challenges.
