WI to support libraries campaign

WI to support libraries campaign

The Women's Institute will mark the 96th anniversary of its first meeting on 16th September with an action to support its Love Your Libraries campaign.

The WI's membership are being asked to each borrow a book from their local library on the day "in recognition of the continued importance of the WI's early vision to widen educational opportunities".

It is the latest step in the institute's library campaign. In August, it launched an e-petition in support of public libraries.
