Speak up for Libraries - today in Parliament

#savelibraries UNISON General Secretary Dave Prentis and writer Kate Mosse will be among the speakers at today’s lobby of Parliament and rally to highlight the importance of libraries in providing access to learning and as a vital lifeline for many communities. Library services have borne the considerable brunt of public spending cuts since the Coalition government took office in 2010. Of the 4,612 libraries in the UK, an estimated 10% are currently either closed or under threat of closure.
