Yesterday was National Libraries Day and this morning I have been looking through some of the different events that happened in libraries across the country. There have been so many imaginative and creative things going on, but there are also lots of online resources and ways to show people how they can be just as creative using libraries every day. This website is also a hub for drawing together current news stories and detailing policy decisions that are affecting money for arts and culture.
There are clearly a lot of people who are passionate about this and it’s great to see, but I’m still left wondering if they will ever have enough of a voice to change things. Unfortunately I’m not convinced and certainly in the area where I live, closures are imminent. Only time will tell.
