Why get caught up in semantics - whether a library is called a learning zone, learning resources centre or dream zone it still does the same thing - provide reading material, research opportunities and support to the community, no matter their age or reading tastes. Of course that's just a few functions and to list all of them would take more time than I have. To suggest that libraries being run by volunteers is a good idea is insulting to professional colleagues and devalues the vital role they fulfil.
Think this was the first time I've listened to Radio 4 - will probably be the last too! Let's hope the day improves....... can't possibly get more depressing one would hope.
