Support our public libraries!

Writing about web page http://www.parliament.uk/about/how/members/mps_contact.cfm

In Update Jan/Feb issue, which came through my door yesterday there is a brief piece on page 6 talking about CILIP Councillor Bruce Royan's support for Early Day Motion 248 which states, amongst other things, that the house:

"therefore welcomes the launch of UNISON's report Taking Stock: The Future of our UK Library Service; supports the report's five point plan for a revitalised public library service maintained and improved by adequate resourcing and public funding, including empowered staff-shaping services in partnership with their local community, partnership working between libraries and councils across the UK, responsiveness to library users from all backgrounds and the provision of staff training and professional development".

Bruce Royan is urging us to contact our MPs and request that they sign the motion.

You can find out who your MP is and how to contact them at:

I will be doing this later today, I hope others will too.
