- Your library? Shut down.
- Youth club? Shut down.
- Refuge? Shelter? Park? Closed.
- Your high street? Shut down.
- Nightclub? Shut down.
- Music venue? What’s one of those?

They call it ‘a clarion call to resist those who close libraries and open chainstores’.
And there is an article in the new issue of the Library Campaigner (now at the printers) by singer Rhi Kavok (a teacher) about what libraries mean to her.
