Voices for the Library

"Voices for the Library" is an information resource for embattled British public librarians.

Its objectives are to promote the need for and value of trained librarians within a free and open-to-all UK public library service, and to be a place where everyone who loves and values libraries can share their stories and experiences. It intends to provide balanced information, and an insight into why librarians are important for the future of the public library.
