The Libraries Change Lives Award ceremony at the close of Cilip’s Umbrella conference on Wednesday was so inspiring. Working in a corporate library there’s not much opportunity to really make a difference to society (the death of the News of the World not withstanding :)).
Cynics might say the result mirrored the usual North v South battle, but not me… I jest obviously, Kent’s Making a Difference project was really impressive! John’s acceptance speech was particularly moving.
A perfect example of why we need to save as many public libraries as we can, while we can.
