#savelibraries False Economies

From the UK’s False Economy: What Cuts Are the Wrong Cure blog:

Leave the libraries alone. You don’t understand their value/strong>

Philip Pullman spoke to a packed meeting on 20 January 2011, called to defend Oxfordshire libraries. He gave an inspirational speech. Read the whole speech here.

“The greedy ghost understands profit all right. But that’s all he understands… He doesn’t understand libraries at all. That branch – how much money did it make last year? Why aren’t you charging higher fines? Why don’t you charge for library cards?”

Philip Pullman is a best-selling author.

I wish there was a video on YouTube.
