Literacy and the Big Society

If you have an interest in literacy you may want to take 5 minutes to fill in the online survey by the National Literacy Trust. They are looking at literacy within the context of the ‘Big Society’ movement.

At the moment I’m not sure how the UK Government’s  big society plans in the Open Public Services White Paper will affect libraries in Wales as libraries are a devolved issue, but if these sorts of proposals come into action then volunteer groups, or private companies, could compete with the Council to run services eg the library service.

Views and comments anyone?
