The official blog of Swansea public libraries, and the UK's longest running public library blog.
Boo! Hiss! I'll never look at Paxman's "big, rubbery horse-face of mock incredulity" the same way again...I admire their devilry in mentioning how Swindon's new library has modern facilities, including internet access, yet still conclude that libraries are anachronistic & that such changes are rare; they should come & have a look at Swansea Central Library.Yes, much of the information available in libraries can be found online but a lot of people still rely on library computers to surf the web in the first place. And of course books are cheap these days but the current economic climate & growing concerns over carbon footprints I think makes libraries incredibly important today.
I particularly liked the fatuous comparison of libraries to Victorian public baths!Who are these people? Do they ever actually visit modern libraries?Cardiff, like Swansea, is far more up-to-date than their mental image of us...
