Message from CILIP – Save Our Libraries

A friend from the UK asked me to share this with TTW readers – Mark Taylor from CILIP writes:

Here at the UK’s Chartered Institute of Library & Information Professionals we’re looking for help from across the globe with a day of action in support of UK public library services.

The day is called Save Our Libraries and it takes place on the 5th Feb. Internationally we are hoping for a global day of tweeting using the hashtag #savelibraries in support of UK public library services.

Can you please encourage your community to tweet using #savelibraries about why public libraries are so important on the 5th Feb and get global awareness? We’ve put together some suggested tweets, can you encourage your community to tweet and get involved?

Ideas for tweets:

Any ideas or suggestions to spread the word and get #savelibraries global would be greatly appreciated.
