Can you help?

“Hi, I’m David Taylor, a postgraduate journalism student at the University of Sheffield. As part of my course, I have to complete a longer piece on the subject of my choosing. I’ve decided to write about the threat to public libraries in the face of economic difficulties, and how people are trying to protect them and overcome the difficulties they face. 

If you would like to talk to me about the work you do, and why you think public libraries are so important, please get in touch either via twitter (@davidrstaylor), email ( or phone (07964389472).”

Thank you!

  1. Really sad that I didn’t see this at the time – if you are still gathering data I would be happy to discuss – and if you have reached any conclusions I would love to see them.
