Just to let you know, the feature I wrote almost a year ago about Writers and Libraries (A Special Relationship) has just been published in the February edition of 'Writers' Forum' - out now! (I had to look twice at the magazine but yes, it's the February edition!).
I hope it helps to publicise the case for keeping the library service afloat - as well as making other writers realise just how much we do need them, and sometimes take it for granted.
And thanks to Dawn for pointing out to me that the feature was published ... I'd put the magazine aside to read after Christmas!
