Dear Woolfians,

My sister in the UK has just alerted me to news of the imminent closure of The Women's Library at London Metropolitan University.  This library has been a vital resource to Woolf scholars who will, of course, be painfully aware of the historical ironies at work in threats to the integrity of its collections and its buildings.  There is a demonstration outside the library tomorrow (22 September).

I don't know what the current state of play is with respect to final decisions, but please take a moment to sign the petition -- the more voices, the better!  
Until today, I did not know about this issue, and I suspect many in the Woolf community may not as well.
