Twenty-one reasons why Worthing should have a public library: An 1892 campaign for our times

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A 1200-word illustrated article, with accompanying cover image, for The Ephemerist, the journal of The Ephemera Society, UK.
The article focuses on a campaign poster produced in Worthing, West Sussex, UK, as part of the Public Library Movement of the late 19th century. The piece argues that the 1892 poster - which outlines twenty-one reasons why public libraries are culturally valuable - can not only tell us about the historic hopes and fears attached to reading but can also function as a campaigning tool to support efforts to keep public libraries open in our own times.
