Campaigners protest at Sheffield library closure plans

Campaigners outside the Central Library in Sheffield today

Campaigners took to the streets in Sheffield today to show their support for the region's libraries.

The hour-long protest, outside the Central Library, was dubbed the "big Shhhhhhhush" as it culminated at 1pm with the age-old library refrain.

Labour-run Sheffield Council says it may have to close up to 14 of 27 community libraries unless it can get other organisations to take over branches, due to budget cuts.
