The NFWI has launched the Love Your Libraries campaign after the resolution on libraries was passed at the 2011 AGM in Liverpool with a 98% majority. Many of our libraries are at risk. The Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP) believes that libraries are facing a disproportionate level of cuts, with 20% of libraries in England alone under threat.The NFWI believes it is time for communities to love their libraries; to use them and share why we value their services, and to raise awareness of the threats to their future.
