Library closures...

Terrible to read in The Guardian that government cuts could mean that there will be widespread library closures. We all understand the need for cuts but I would suggest that when times are hard and people are losing their jobs, free access to books is more important than ever. The picture shows my local Braunton Library.

This is a widespread problem. A pity you do not provide pointers for campaigners on how we might tackle the very many Councils who are failing to comply with the requirements of the Museums and Libraries Act 1964 by not undertaking needs and equality assessments before deciding how cuts will be made.

It's clear some are hoping to get away with it, but in the extreme case, we need people to force Public Inquiries or Judicial Reviews.
