Speak Up For Libraries has arranged a national lobby of Parliament for 9 February. This is an excellent opportunity for library campaigners to highlight the damage which is being done to library services across the country and to impress on MPs the outrage of their constituents at the prospect of further, and possibly irreversible, cuts. It is also an opportunity for us to meet other campaigners to exchange ideas.
Do come if you are able to. Guidelines to lobbying are in the attached download document. Three points to highlight :
i) contact your MP to arrange to meet them on the day
ii) if you cannot come, please take one of the actions suggested in section 9 of the document in the next few weeks, to add to the impact of the exercise
iii) let FOLOB know what action you take, and what action your MP takes
