A group of British librarians recently began legislative action against the U.K. government for its failure to protect public libraries from defunding. Argue why groups representing libraries, museums, and schools in the U.S. should do the same.
Very good topic. There are many libraries closing because they weren't able to get funding... But I would suggest expanding the topic by what other alternatives arts councils could use. There were few libraries managed to save themselves via lobby or other means. For example, Hillingdon Libraries in UK installed Starbucks Cafe in their facilities to gather budget for new equipment and books. Looking at cases like these and discussing the difficulty in implementing strategies as such might strengthen the topic. – idleric6 years ago
