Stop Victorian Library Cuts

Well we all thought here in Australia, that libraries would not be facing the cuts seen by our colleagues in the US and Europe. But in Victoria (the birthplace of Australian public libraries) the state government has indicated cuts to council funding for libraries.

A campaign has begun, the media are supportive and councils are opposing, and there is of course a facebook page to bring it all together.

There is also a petition http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/funding-to-public-libraries-in-victoria-must-not-be-cut.html#fbbox

Please do what you can to help.
