School libraries, or the lack of them, is an issue that won't go away. Many people assume that all schools have to have a library, but this is not the case and there are now schools up and down the country that have none, or which do not have any qualified librarian. Obviously most primaries can't afford a full-time librarian, but they could share, as happens in Tower Hamlets. And surely all secondary schools should have a properly run library. But no. There was a lobby of Parliament on Monday, asking for recognition of the library's contribution in the OFSTED framework. There is to an Early Day Motion in the House of Commons asking the House to recognise their role. Wouldn't it be great if people could ask their MPs to sign?
