Interesting Article on Library Budget Problems in the UK

February 5th, 2013 at 03:37 pm

I wasn't going to post again today, but have been following this story with amazement. The local governments here are under a lot of financial pressure, and many libraries have closed. But folks in this part of London took matters into their own hands with amazing results:

It made me think of all the avid library users on SA--and Laura the librarian. It's so awful that libraries are so often first victims of budget cuts. But I like how this story comes out.

    LOL This is the sort of thing that would happen in my county if someone tried to shut a branch down. Two of our libraries were built completely on the donations of patrons.
