Save Our Libraries!
Campaigners in Oxfordshire used the recent Oxford Literary Festival as an opportunity to promote their cause by asking speakers to wear a ribbon (above) in support. Among those sporting ribbons during the event were:
Professor Peter Atkins
Dr Sally Cline
Sir Anthony Kenny
John Julius Norwich
Inspired by their example, and with their permission, Voices for the Library are offering other campaigns the opportunity to join in. We plan to offer the ribbons, in return for a small donation, at all the events we will be attending over the summer. If any other local or national campaigns are interested in obtaining a supply of ribbons for their own use we’ll be happy to hear from you via the usual email address:
(Ribbons cost between 13p and 18p each depending on quantity ordered.)
This is a great opportunity to grow national support for our public library service as well as an opportunity for local campaigns to raise money for their cause.
We are grateful to our sponsors, Credo Reference Limited, for their continued support and for financing our initial purchase of ribbons.
