Has the public library had its day?

When did you last visit your local library? And, more to the point, perhaps, what did you go there for?

As the government prepares to announce its strategy on the future of public libraries, Newsnight's David Grossman has been to Swindon to find out more about what is being done to ensure these great civic institutions survive.

Broadcast on Monday 15 March 2010.
