Libraries are a local authority run, so will vary a lot across the 
country. Each local authority will take its own look at the 
recommendations from central government and then do their own thing.

That said, local councillors are usually easier to approach than MPs and 
have a more direct level of influence on what the council does than MPs 
have over central government. So it is well worth lobbying your local 
councillor. You ought to be able to find out who they are and how to 
contact them on your local council's website. NB depending on where you 
live there may be more than one tier of local government, and you need 
to lobby the one that has control of the library to have any hope of a 
positive impact.
