Library campaigner Tim Coates has made his last contribution to his popular blog, The Good Library Blog, and opened it up as a public web forum instead. "I wanted to change the tone and open up the discussion to other people. It was in a rut," he said.
Coates' last entry on 18th October attracted praise from both sides of the debate. One commenter, "Peter", said: "I don't always agree with your views, but you've raised many important issues (and some hackles) that needed to be aired." Another, Amanda Field, praised its "consciousness-raising" brilliance. "[It's useful to know] that people all around the UK are battling against the same problems."
