The British Library is under threat as never before. Our local village library is under threat of closure, along with seven others in the county. The council's aim seems to be to concentrate resources in the towns, and assume that most village inhabitants will be able to get to towns if they want to visit libraries. When this is allied with the prospective complete cut in the council's subsidy for rural buses, one wonders.
Tomorrow, February 5th is Library Read-in Day. Voices for the Library has details of events in many libraries.
Irchester Library is holding its own read in from 11.00am until 1.00pm. If you're in any way local, it would be great to see you there. Other local libraries supporting the Read-in are Roade and St James.
