A colleague of mine sent this and I thought it was worth sharing here: "Should Every School Have a Library? You might think they do already, but many don't, or at least don't fund and staff them adequately. Did you know that by law prisons must have a Library, but there is no such obligation for schools. If you feel you could support school libraries as a right for all our children, please sign the petition on the Number 10 website - 1900 people have signed already. http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/literacy is the website."

See Independent article 'You can't kill off libraries and call it 'creative'' here that mentions the petition.
