End library austerity - secure revenue funding for public libraries in the Chancellor’s Budget

    This is a fundamental community issue particularly essential for many poorer families and other lower income groups – enrich our local communities

    Libraries should be available to all, whether public, shool, or higher education, and they should be properly resourced with books, staff, and everything else needed to make them useful. Children should learn to love to read, not just use screens.

    Libraries are the hallmark of any civilised society. No Government seriously wishing for equal opportunities in education would fail to fund them. An essential service for ALL generations.
