We are local residents who are passionate about Stirchley library. It’s not just a place to find books, information and resources; it’s a safe space where everyone is welcome.

We are an unincorporated association and our core purpose is to support the library services within the existing library building. We want to ensure that residents of Stirchley and the surrounding areas have access to the building and its resources for generations to come.

As of February 2024 Stirchley Library, like other community libraries within Birmingham, is under threat of closure. Please sign the petition using the link below to show your support for saving Stirchley Library and other community libraries. There is also a separate dedicated campaign group called Save Stirchley Library - sign up for email updates using the link below.
