A visit to the library, whether it be the physical building or its online location can have a massive impact on the lives of individuals and communities. If you don’t believe me then have a look at The Bradford District Care Trust and Libraries Partnership Project which has just been awarded the CILIP / LiS Libraries Change Lives Award for 2008.
Since 2006 Bradford Central Library has provided excellent opportunities for people with a range of learning disabilities to realise their full potential and become active citizens within their local community. Check out the real world impact of the project in a recent article from The Guardian.
Congratulations Bradford; breaking down barriers and promoting access, it’s what the library’s all about!
