e-Petition in support of libraries
The government's e-petitions website has a petition asking for the continuation of support for local libraries from Whitehall. The wording is as follows:
I, the undersigned, believe that libraries are an essential local educational and information resource yet with many libraries under threat, the future of the library service is at risk. I want to see the value of libraries recognised at both local and national levels and I am calling on the Government to honour both its commitment to act as a champion of the library service, and its duty of oversight to ensure that a comprehensive and efficient library service is provided.
It's got 1,456 signatures at time of writing - let's help get it higher.
