  • Closure of libraries around the world seems to be happening more and more. They offer so much more than "just" taking out books and reading them.

    With regard to Spencer Library - surely this has become famous enough through a certain ginger cat who did so much to publicise it in his own feline way. Looking at the virtual tour of this establishment he is still there - his portrait, his bronze statue etc., and I understand there is a Dewey section whereby people can look at "all things Dewey"

    After all Vicki Myron's hard work - not only in regard to Dewey, but all the work she put it on modernising the library etc., this would be tragic indeed if Spencer Library was closed.

    I'm from way across the world from you people and only know of the library through Vicki's lovely book about Dewey - but how well she wrote of it and how much it meant to her; great pity if her hard work was all for "nothing"

    I know that "all things Dewey" merchandise is on sale at the library - surely another moneyspinner, and have recently placed a VERY small - admittedly - order with you, but hope in some very small way it helps.

    Fingers crossed the powers that be do not see fit to close it down.

    Our own library in the small town of Sandown on the Isle of Wight is threatened with closure, reprieved for another year thankfully but no idea what is going to happen after March 2011 - more fingers remaining permanently crossed here. It would be a great blow.

    Nothing quite like reading so far as I'm concerned and all libraries these days seem to offer so much more.
