Warwickshire County Council libraries
Gerina Adams writes on the matter of councils reducing their book funds
"Perkins, Have a word with Warwickshire County Council on this subject, too- will you?"
Gerina- Warwickshire is a Conservative administration and Ed Vaizey, who is the Conservative shadow minister with responsibility for public libraries approached Warwickshire County Council some weeks ago on exactly this subject. He has suggested to both Ayub Khan, the head of the library service and to me that we should get together and open a discussion. I have written to Ayub expressing my willingness to do this and he has said that he will respond.
You could write, yourself, to Ayub and encourage him to engage in this, and I am sure he will be eager to follow the wishes of those who are concerned.

I have been using the Warwickshire librarys for many years, and feel that the high standard that it has always offered could be under threat if funds were reduced.
Libraries are very important places for learning,and those who make the decisions on funding should realise this.
