Public libraries are facing an uncertain future. While austerity continues and the cuts bite deeper library services are needed more than ever. High quality libraries fight illiteracy, support learners and are essential services in communities across the country.
Speak Up For Libraries is a coalition of organisations working to protect library services and staff, now and in the future.
New Important Resource for Supporters of the Public Libraries
We have now added an important resource sheet to the website for existing campaigners or those thinking of setting up a Friends or campaign group. It lists links to useful information on topics relating to Public Libraries in the UK.
It is our initial response to the request at the recent Speak Up For Libraries Conference for a central onlineinformation point where campaigners et al can go to for data, legislation, reports, good practice etc. It can be accessed on our resource page.
