Senior Manager Gives, At Best, Lukewarm Support For The Universal Need For Paid And Qualified Library Staff

Posted at 7:38AM Thursday 05 Apr 2012

Another senior manager today gave, at best, lukewarm support for the universal need for paid and qualified library staff. At the end of an interview with the highly influential Today Programme this morning, Tony Durcan appeared to say that volunteers could replace paid staff as long as they had a "network of skilled people" to support them. Mr Durcan is the boss of Newcastle City Council libraries, a former president of the Society of Chief Librarians and a current Councillor of CILIP, the professional body for librarians.
