At the 2011 NFWI AGM WI members adopted a mandate launching the Love Your Libraries campaign.
The campaign is built on the understanding that our public libraries are cherished spaces that hold a unique position at the heart of local communities.
WI members have championed the library service, highlighted the important role that public libraries play, particularly in touch economic times, and raised awareness of risks to the service.
