I picked up a Public Libraries News post which mainly featured the Capita report on Protecting Library Services. Ian Anstice is quoted extensively in the report, which also supports my long held view that as budgets are cut, we have to protect services rather than buildings.
The report seems to see this mainly in terms of improving online services for libraries, although I think there are many other aspects. These would include the provision of those old fashioned things called books, the number and quality of events, opening hours, helpfulness of staff and so on. However, I am glad that one of the key underpinnings of our strategy is being recognised more widely.
