Little British Libraries in Need of Help

Pippa Greensmith is campaigning to save the local library in Little Chalfont, Buckinghamshire , a village at the end of the metropolitan tube line. She's collecting signatures for a petition to keep the library open.

More on this campaign and others from the "Action Network"-- Britons who have made a difference in their local area-- at the Beeb.

Apparently they're not the only one...

An article at the ALA Website talks about many British libraries that may face closings due to lack of funds.

The proposed closings follow a March 2005 report from a U.K. House of Commons committee that found 50% of library services as "persistently below standard" after decades of underfunding.

Gee, I wonder what they THOUGHT would happen to the services if they didn't fund them.
