We are delighted to have received the following message of support for our campaign from local author John Dougherty
A properly-funded library service is the backbone of education and the heart of a civilised society. If our banks are ‘too big to fail’ then our libraries are certainly too important to lose, and there can be no justification for bailing out one at the cost of the other.
Please let me know if I can help. I’m a great believer in the importance of public libraries, and when I visit schools to talk about my books I often use the opportunity to promote the local library.
