Coming soon - Libraries All Party Parliamentary Group (UK)

The Libraries APPG is being established to provide MPs and Lords with information and opportunities for debate about the role that libraries play in society and their future, with Justin Tomlinson MP as its Chair. The APPG will promote and discuss themes in the wider information and knowledge sector including the impact of technology, skills and training, professional standards and broader issues. Library and information services exist in a variety of places including schools, prisons, universities, government, private companies, law firms, colleges, health and public libraries. By developing literacy skills, providing access to information and enabling the transfer of knowledge libraries and staff help build a fair and prosperous society. It is important they are run by skilled staff with the right expertise. The APPG will be officially launched on the 14 December
