3pm – 4.30pm Discussion – HOW CAN WE WORK TOGETHER?
o The Library Campaign does all it can to raise awareness of public library issues, and to represent and support local campaign/Friends groups (many of whom do not choose to take up membership).
o Local groups do impressive work – research, publicity, innovative ideas, monitoring the quality of local services, campaigning against cuts.
o Then there are valuable online resources – again, all provided by volunteers
o MORE THAN EVER, WE NEED TO SUPPORT EACH OTHER
We have invited a wide range of representatives to help us – and you – get some answers to questions such as:
o What more could The Library Campaign do for you?
o How can The Library Campaign increase membership, and encourage more people to help expand our work?
o What are the central issues we need to concentrate on?
o What can we ALL do to co-ordinate and share resources, ideas and support?
WE NEED YOUR IDEAS – AND CONTRIBUTIONS
