    I’m moving to England this summer. Libraries need to be funded better to provide services to the public/ their communities. Libraries are more than books, they are social connectedness and sources of education and information. Everyone has the right to information and better themselves.

    We need to make a special effort to support libraries in socially deprived areas.

    With the increased automation of services and the ever decreasing peopled services available free of charge, Libraries are increasingly looked towards for not only reading but also education, community activity, guidance and advice.

    As a retired Librarian, I am appalled at what is happening to libraries. Children and old people especially need a local library!
