« Eight-strong group become 'community librarians' with locals' support after law change forces them out of residential property »

« The Public Libraries News website run by librarian Ian Anstice estimates that nationally 270 libraries have closed or are under threat out of a total of 4,612. Bolton, the Isle of Wight and Lewisham in south-east London have been hit hard by the closures and Surrey has approved plans to remove paid staff from 10 libraries and rely on trained volunteers instead. Brent residents are fighting for the right to run Kensal Rise library which the council has closed ».

« While Anstice praises the work that volunteers are doing to keep open local libraries, he warns of the alarming effect this is having nationally. "All this makes it easier for councils to divest themselves of libraries and it
destroys what is already a very fragmented network. We are facing the worst trend in public library provision in peacetime history »
