    Visiting the United States recently I came across a poster with details of the new library planned for the small town of Stockbridge, in New England. What is it the Americans of New England have realised about the value of a library that our Neanderthals in government haven’t?

    Anyone would think that a library service was some late 20th century splashing-out by a profligate socialist government. History tells me that we’ve had a library service of some kind since Victorian times. However urgent the need to bring government and local authority expenditure into budget, I can’t believe that a library service is so low on the list. What kind of society do we want?
