A new music video features pictures of people with their library cards

In 2012, One Man And His Beard released a song “We Need Libraries” to coincide with National Libraries Day, but most importantly, to protest against alarming cuts to the library services in UK and around the world.

Now, Chris Arkley from Out of the Ark Productions created a great video for the song. It features pictures of happy library lovers from all over the world showing their library cards.

I can’t imagine a better video to accompany a great quote by Eleanor Crumblehulme: “Cutting libraries during a recession is like cutting hospitals during a plague.”

The song is available on iTunes.
