National Libraries Day today!

Yesterday I highlighted the consultation survey - not a great start as it is too complex. Anyway today is for celebrations....Children's author Alan Gibbons, who is the brains behind the idea of a National Libraries Day, has said that our efforts in Gloucestershire to ensure a decent library service was "a beacon to the whole country". See about Glos campaign here and more about the day at: http://www.nationallibrariesday.org.uk/

Here are two links to great articles that featured in the press yesterday. The Guardian Books Blog to which Demelza submitted a "Save our Libraries : A Readers Report" entry: http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/booksblog/2012/feb/03/save-library-campaigns   and an article in the Guardian which reflects on a year of library campaigning. Glos are mentioned several times and although the battle is far from over it is great to see the impact made not just locally, but nationally.

In a mo I will do a post on this blog about Stroud Potato Day which is also today in Merrywalks.
