The Case for Libraries by two of my top authors

The battle for libraries is on! Obviously, I think they’re magical, excellent, exciting and necessary places (see my joy when I registered to my local library) and I really hope that they don’t disappear.

Two of my very favourite authors (unsurprisingly) agree, and have written wonderful pieces in their defence in The Guardian. They’re really interesting referring to reading in general, the imagination and the writing process as well. Read them below:

Neil Gaiman: Why our future depends on libraries, reading and daydreaming.

Susan Cooper: libraries are the frontline in the war for the imagination.
