THE INDEPENDENT : 9th June
Katy Guest | Reading rights  (scroll down)
Like the new Children’s  Laureate, Malorie Blackman, as a child I read “anything and everything I could get my hands on”, and like her that meant that I relied on my  local library. The Government doesn’t get this – like it doesn’t get  that some people’s dads can’t fix them up with jobs in finance – but  most parents can’t afford to buy tons of books for their kids. Never  mind a university education: developing a love of reading is a basic  right that should be taken for granted by everyone in this country. I’m  with Malorie: save our libraries.
