"The Act clearly states:
“It shall be the duty of every library authority to provide a comprehensive and efficient library service for all persons desiring to make use thereof…. of encouraging both adults and children to make full use of the library service.” [emphasis mine]

Encouraging people to use the library requires promotional activity and this is fundamental to the delivery of a comprehensive and efficient library service."Croydon has already experienced this decline in the breadth of activities on offer and in the promotion of its activities.

|Welcome children....If you move to the front of the building and perch on tippy-toes you can look at the books..Enjoy!|
