This is a message from Councillor Kevin Rodgers, who called in library cuts and closures to the council’s Overview and Scrutiny committee:
As many of you will know Councillors will be asking the Mayor and Cabinet to think again over libraries at a meeting on Friday the 18th of February. The SDL Blog and this page have some wonderful links to research on links between literacy libraries and life chances. If anyone has any links to research could they post them on the comments – it woud be great to crowd source the best case to keep the libraries open.
