Leon’s Library Blog : 22nd April
Public & Mobile Libraries Group Survey
I wonder how public campaigners will respond when they see the results  of this survey. I suspect there will be many ‘head in hands’ moments and a lot of disappointment as it seems that library staff, while  professing to be concerned about cuts and closures, appear as a  profession to want to do little about it, or even worse, leave it to the public to campaign on our behalf.
