Yesterday was Save Our Libraries Day.
Three hundred and fifty libraries are understood to be under threat of closure.
As a family we borrow books, audio books and CDs and occasionally rent a DVD for £1.50 from our library. The children regularly reserve items for free - this week son 2 reserved The Dead by Charlie Higson. I used to attend story time when the children were preschoolers and we've been to comic strip workshops and mobile zoo presentations at the library.
This is my local library. I love it. I hope it's around for many, many years.
