I love it. Seems Wigan librarians are considering striking because of sunday opening and longer hours. I'm sorry, but aren't we struggling to gain people's attention to get them to come. Surely, with people working more hours we need to make ourselves more available to Joe Public not less? I'm with Tim Coates when it come's to reducing opening when he says:-
Because we know that the three most important aspects of the library are its stock, its building and its opening hours. If someone is to be responsible for improving the quality of the service to the local people they must be able to influence these three things, and over all three they need to have day to day tight control .
