Public Libraries Transform Lives™

We are adamant that as part of the Social Contract between the British State and its People, and enshrined in the 1964 Libraries and Museums Act, it is the duty of the British State to fully fund ALL Public Library Services.

Public Libraries are a lynchpin in our Welfare State.
