UK Government Committee Report on Public Library Closures Due Next Week

From The Bookseller:

The Department of Culture, Media and Sport’s select committee will publish its reports on library closures next week after a series of delays. The report will be published on the committee’s website on Tuesday (6th November).

The committee, chaired by Conservative MP John Whittingdale had hoped to release the report in October, but publication was repeatedly pushed back.
