As the hangover from Nu-Labour's spending binge begins to bite, we are all realising just how much the spending cuts are going to affect all of us. Although my local library at Ilkley has not appeared on any closure list as yet, I have been in the renew my membership and borrow some books. It's ages since I have been to the library, I didn't even realise they stocked graphic novels.
Ilkley library seemed well used when I was in on Wednesday morning, a group of children were listening to stories in the children's section, another small room was being set up for a craft session, and there were about a dozen people in the main library, reading newspapers and books, browsing or using the internet.
