Here’s your chance to be at the first-ever dialogue between grassroots campaigners and the national Taskforce.

Paul Blantern, chair, and Kathy Settle, chief executive, are main speakers (and listeners) at The Speak Up for Libraries conference on 14 November.

One thing is clear: if any official action is planned to rescue our shattered library service, it will come via the Taskforce.

The Leadership for Libraries Taskforce was set up after last year’s Sieghart report called for urgent action. As it finally gets into gear, this is YOUR chance to make sure it gets the right messages from campaigners.

Also speaking: librarians’ new leader Nick Poole, star campaigner Alan Gibbons, author-funnyman John Dougherty.
