Love Your Libraries campaign from National Federation of Women's Institutes (UK)

Many of our libraries are at risk. The Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP) believes that libraries are facing a disproportionate level of cuts, with 20% of libraries in England alone under threat.

The NFWI believes it is time for communities to love their libraries; to use them and share why we value their services, and to raise awareness of the threats to their future.

The NFWI has launched the Love Your Libraries campaign after the below resolution was passed at the 2011 AGM in Liverpool with a 98% majority:

The Closure of Local Libraries:
"This meeting urges H.M. Government to maintain support for local libraries, as an essential local educational and information resource"
