There are no votes in libraries
Date: Tuesday 11 July 2006
Time: 6.30 pm
Venue: The Sekforde Arms, Sekforde Street, London EC1
Speaker: Brian M. Hall, The Library Campaign
Libraries are in the news again: the forthcoming Local Government White
Paper will focus on their role in neighbourhood renewal, while the Culture
Minister has threatened to take over the running of public libraries where
there are threats of widespread closures.
Campaigning for, and promoting, libraries of all kinds is crucial to
ensuring that they continue to provide the services users need.
Brian is passionate about libraries and has pledged to lead from the front
in the campaign to promote them. In this talk he will discuss the role of
the Library Campaign and show how a pressure group can help maintain and
develop key services.
Brian Hall is Chairman of the Library Campaign and has spoken widely in
the support of libraries. He is a CILIP Branch Councillor and was formerly
Senior Lecturer in Information Studies at the University of Central
CILIP in London evening meetings are free and open to all with a
professional interest in the topic. Refreshments will be available
afterwards. As space is limited, please let us know if you are coming. It
would be helpful to tell us how you found out about the event. Contact
