From an email I received today: "Love Libraries is inviting you to get involved in shaping and planning the future of public libraries. As a valued Love Library Champion, we would love to hear your thoughts on the services that are most important to you, and how libraries could be improved to meet your needs and expectations."
I don't know what Tim Coates will make of this, but I did the survey, which took less than a minute: said that books are important; libraries should be open for longer hours; and suggested a single library card for any borough or town. If you want to do your bit for books, here is the link to the survey, which is open until 31 May.
"Your response will form part of a consultation, led by the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (MLA) on the future role of the modern public library. The results will be available later in the year on the Love Libraries website."
