Library Enrolment, How??

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/education/11810700/Every-child-in-England-to-be-enrolled-in-a-local-library-Nicky-Morgan-says.html

Oh my goodness!!! (to put it politely) I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this article.

A government minister saying how important reading is for children and how they need to be exposed to all kinds of books to develop their reading skills.  This is all going to be made easy by children of junior age being enrolled in local libraries!

Unfortunately those libraries aren’t there anymore because the government has stood by and watched numerous local libraries close, so how is this going to happen?

Various authors, reading agencies, librarians, to name but a few, have been campaigning for libraries and advocating school libraries for a number of years now. Does this mean they are finally being listened to?  We will have to see if these are just empty words, yet again from a politician wanting to make a name for themselves!
