We hope Sarah’s Story will be the first of many library stories using the hashtag #YourLibraryStory, documenting how libraries help individuals and communities and change people’s lives for the better.
I was really excited to talk to someone at the local ECHO newspaper today who is interested in helping to publicize our documentary and the SaveOurLibraries campaign.
Hopefully this will get the ball rolling locally, encouraging other people to share their library stories and get the news of library cuts and closures to a wider audience through social media.
My next step is to contact Martyn Andrews from RT News. Martyn contacted me earlier in the year and requested some of the footage I had shot at local library campaigns as RT News were considering covering the story of UK library cuts. Unfortunately the station dropped the story in the end but Martyn encouraged me to get in touch if I had any additional material so maybe #YourLibraryStory might be of interest.
