Libraries Change Lives Award: Oop north

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 :)).

I wrote a quick piece for the Guardian’s Northerner blog (follow @GdnNortherner) – Kent may have taken the top prize but it was satisfying to see the other two finalists were from the North East!

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.
