Ur BBC news

His Dark Materials author Philip Pullman has been particularly vocal
over proposals to close 20 of Oxfordshire County Council's 43
libraries.

He said the impact would not be easily measured. He said: "It's a kind
of inward loss, a darkening of things, a narrowing of horizons that
will gradually make us a less informed, less intelligent, less aware,
less useful, less imaginative, less kindly people than we might have
been."

Ur Public Libraries news:

In Egypt, the National Library is being protected by a well-organised
group of students co-ordinating with the military.  In the UK,
libraries are being protected by by authors, by celebrities and, most
importantly and in their hundreds of thousands, by the public. The
campaigning was widely positively reported by newspapers - Guardian,
Independent, Telegraph, Express and the Sun - and all over the BBC and
worldwide.  That is a very broad spectrum of poltical views and
readerships.  Further, research this week showed that  library use can
double the literacy rate of children.
