I am a big Coronation Street fan. I have been known to gossip about the characters with some of my regular patrons here in Lincoln.
The UK has experienced a large number of public library closures due to Council budget cuts. In Canada, the fight to save the Weatherfield library is being shown on the Street. They are highlighting the important role of public libraries for everyone, especially those who are disadvantaged. They are also celebrating the feisty librarians who make a difference in their communities.
In Canada, we are fortunate that our politicians are continuing their support of public libraries and what we do. Let's hope that the citizens of the UK continue to fight for their libraries!
Here is the Corrie library protest on Youtube.
