Libraries improve wellbeing - social, cultural, economic and educational

The Carnegie UK Trust has produced some excellent new resources showing how important public libraries are, improving the wellbeing of individuals and communities.

Too often councillors seeking to make cuts have closed local libraries or reduced opening hours. And our The Cuts Don't Work report shows there are more and deeper cuts to come.

So campaigns to support libraries should be able to make good use of the leaflets and posters which highlight in a clear, graphical way how libraries impact on wellbeing through four main policy areas: social, economic, cultural and education policy.
