Women's Institute "disappointed" by library report (UK)

The Women's Institute has expressed "disappointment" with the newly published Future Libraries Programme, the government backed report that made recommendations like putting libraries in the hands of community groups. The report has been hailed by culture minister Ed Vaizey as "a hugely useful resource, inspiring local authorities to emulate the best ideas to provide a first rate library service". Other recommendations in the report, "Future Libraries: Change, Options and How to Get There", included private sector funding and self-service borrowing points in shops and village halls
