Communities love their libraries

Isn’t it nice to read an email that makes you smile? Last week Tess’s boyfriend Scott sent me a link to 10 unusual and beautiful public libraries, with stunning photographs of the loveliest buildings. It’s not just the architecture that I love but what the buildings represent to the local people.

Robert Dawson’s libraries show how important a library is to a community and many of them were built by the women who first settled in an area.

It’s a difficult time for Langley Library at the moment. Local newspapers have reported that it’s one of five local libraries at risk and our customers are feeling angry and sad at the possibility of us closing. There’s going to be a public consultation next month and hopefully we’ll know more after that.
