DCMS Inquiry into Library closures

6 Feb

Tomorrow sees the start of the inquiry into Library closures by the Culture, Media and Sport
Committee. One of Rosehill Readers, Abby Barker, will be giving evidence on behalf of the campaign group Voices for the Library.

You can view the hearing online on Parliament TV from 10.30am.

Rosehill Readers submitted evidence to this inquiry, which you can read here (our submission is on page 503). Many councils that are making cuts also made submissions to this inquiry, explaining how their cuts will help to shape their local library service, nobody from Suffolk did. No doubt they were all too busy being too excited about the “exciting” new “opportunities” that the IPS will bring to be bothered to defend their choices.
