Libraries, the referendum and you

A couple of related news items caught our eyes recently.

First, local author Sara Sheridan announced she was going to stop reading fiction, and concentrate instead on politics and economics, in the run-up to September’s referendum.

Secondly, a study commissioned by the Law Society found that one in ten voters said they were ‘not at all informed’ about the issues being debated.

That’s where libraries come in. 

As the referendum approaches, make us your first port of call for investigating the arguments on both sides of the debate, as well as for books on more general ideas of nationhood, citizenship, economics and democracy

We will also be signposting online resources like What Scotland Thinks and the BBC referendum library

Look out, too, for news of special events in libraries in the run-up to September’s vote.
