CILIP: My Library By Right Campaign

mylibrarybyright-page

In a move that has Library Campaigners across the UK saying things like “Finally!” and “It’s about time!” CILIP has launched the My Library By Right Campaign to bring people together to campaign for:

  • The public’s rights to libraries to be recognised and respected
  • Public libraries to be treated as the statutory services they are
  • The Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) to carry out their legal duties under the 1964 Public Libraries and Museums Act
  • Statutory guidance for local authorities on their duties under the 1964 Public Libraries and Museums Act from DCMS, with support from CILIP and the library and information profession
  •
