Use the pages below to explore some of the key ways that libraries support their communities. The information and statistics included in these pages present a strong case for the continued funding and development of libraries. You can incorporate these points into your own campaigning and advocacy.

We also created a page of evidence for our Libraries Matter campaign which you can view here.

Furthermore, check out our #Library5 2019 and #Library5 2020 campaign pages. Here we have collated social media posts shared during Libraries Week which outline the wide variety of services and activities happening in libraries across all sectors. These are a great demonstration of how important and valuable library services are.

We want to continue to grow these pages and keep them up-to-date. Please get in touch with us if your library is doing anything that you would like to see included on our website as evidence of the value of libraries.
