For a long time now, we have been focused on highlighting cuts and closures across the country. We did not envisage, when we started out, that this would be the case. We wanted to highlight both the importance of libraries and the value of trained, professional librarians. So, we’re finally going to do something to redress the balance.
Next week, we are going to run a series of posts exploring the work librarians do across all sectors. We believe that these posts will help to underline what it is that librarians do and demonstrate why they are important and valuable, even in the age of the internet. We are going to share posts from librarians in a range of unique and fascinating roles. They will demonstrate the impact that librarians have on education, healthcare and global development. Above all, they demonstrate that the role of the professional librarian is as important and vital as ever.
