Será a 5 de Fevereiro. Vale a pena estar atento
CILIP is supporting Save Our Libraries Day, a day of action to bring greater attention to the cuts and closures facing many public libraries.
We want everyone who cares about reading, literacy and libraries to use their public library on the 5th February and tell as many people as they can to do the same.
