Libraries under threat

Here’s a link to a map of public libraries in the UK that are now under threat of closure as a result of funding cuts.  There are rumours of closures that aren’t listed, so things may be even worse than they look.

I’m not aiming to start a political debate here.  There’s nothing I can say that hasn’t been better said elsewhere. I just think the potential scale of our – of everyone’s – loss should be both marked and mourned.
