Abstract

Between 1939 and 1945 Britains public libraries often struggled to balance wartime shortages in materials and staff with an increased readership, while also being expected to actively contribute services and skills to the war effort. Government documents, committee minutes, reports, news stories and interviews have been employed in an attempt to build a picture of one particular librarys experiences during this period.
