In these uncertain times, those us working in organisations that are fully, or even part funded by the state, are well aware of the difficulties that may come our way. However this article and video made me aware of the dire situation some local libraries face. Personally, I balked at the idea of a library in a pub. And while it may be that libraries are eventually staffed by willing volunteers, it makes me very sad that the skills of librarians will feel devalued.
Also, where will the children read? Outside on the picnic benches with a bottle of Panda Pops?
