Research into poverty and effects of funding cuts on libraries

Rebecca M Jones is a freelance writer, currently researching the impact of public libraries on the causes and symptoms of poverty. She’s keen to access wide-ranging insight into who uses public libraries, who doesn’t,  and why. She is also looking for information on the impact of funding cuts on library services, and whether this is encouraging a misconception of public libraries as outdated and redundant. If you’re someone who never uses their public library, why not?
