Libraries Need Investment to Thrive

"Libraries Need Investment to Thrive." The Guardian / John Harris.
UK; The Guardian UK Online, August 24th 2010.

"The subject is our public libraries – which, to read the accompanying coverage, are in danger of falling into dusty decline. Apparently, only 12.8% of us made a monthly habit of visiting our local library last year, and just 40% of us went there at least once. The Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS)  reckons that the number of weekly visitors to libraries has fallen by 32% in five years."
