This blog is a place for staff from the Taskforce for Libraries to share their personal experiences of their work.

We also feature guest blogs from representatives of the organisations who are members of the Taskforce, and people who have a view which illustrates our aims.

If you have an opinion you would like to share or topic you would like to see discussed here, or an example of good practice taking place in a public library, or if you would like to submit your own guest post, please contact us:

To find out more about the Taskforce, and to read our published reports, and minutes of our meetings, take a look at our pages on GOV.UK.

We want these personal blogs to be a genuine sharing of ideas, so we will aim to read the comments you post here and respond to the debate.
