And Now, Good News from England

There's been quite the uproar about the closing of libraries in the UK. Good news - eight got saved. Northamptonshire responded to pro-library campaigning and adjusted their budget to allow the libraries to stay open, and libraries in a handful of other places have been spared, too.

St James resident Graham Croucher, who has been campaigning to save St James Library, which was one of those earmarked for the chop, said: “We’re absolutely delighted that common sense has prevailed.

“But the work starts now to protect the libraries in the future, because these proposals will come back then, I’m sure.”
