Library services are going to be massively reduced because of cuts. Libraries are not just spaces for books and nerds and silence. They are places for learning literacy and numeracy, for people to get internet access, for help with finding information on how to write a good job application, for children and their families to find confidence in reading and socailising, and a place to go read the paper.
With descisions to close libraries already being made across the country (for example in Warwickshire) people are begining to realise what this will mean for their communities and taking action. SJ Bradley's post talks about why libraries are important, and how people in Leeds took action on SAturday 5th February, Save Libraires Day.
