Give a thought for the librarians

In all this talk about closing libraries, has anyone given a thought about the librarians?

Are they to be thrown on the scrap heap as the steelworkers, miners and the fisherman have been?

Perhaps they will be expected to ‘volunteer’ to run the proposed community-ran libraries in their new ‘enforced’ leisure time.

I am not a librarian, just someone who values our libraries and the excellent services our librarians give us.
