Save Walton Library from Sunday Closures

We the undersigned petition Surrey County Council to Keep Walton-on-Thames Library open on Sundays

In the heart of Walton-on-Thames, the library is a crucial lifeline for many residents and families, especially on Sundays when workplaces and schools are closed.

Imagine a young student, facing an upcoming deadline, unable to access the internet or research materials at home. The Sunday library hours become a haven, offering a quiet space, reliable Wi-Fi, and a wealth of resources to complete their assignment. Likewise, parents seeking educational materials for their children, or individuals relying on the library for job searches or computer access, all find solace and support within these walls on a day typically devoid of such services.

For some, the library becomes a warm refuge from the cold winter months, offering a space to read, relax, or simply connect with others. Closing the library on Sundays would sever this essential link, creating a barrier to knowledge, opportunity, and even a sense of community for those who depend on it most.

Walton-on-Thames thrives because of its commitment to fostering a well-rounded and inclusive environment. Keeping the library open on Sundays is a testament to that commitment, ensuring year-round access to the resources that empower, educate, and enrich the lives of its residents.
