Books Are For Everyone | Save Our Libraries

NOTE: Petition is for UK Residents only…

Melissa Holden, Writer

Here in the UK, there has been a lot of talk of libraries closing all over the country. The party line is because they aren’t used much anymore, but I call bullshit on that one.

When I was little, my favourite part of the week was Saturday morning. Every Saturday, my mother would walk me down to the town library and let me pick as many books as I could carry. I was not unlike to Roald Dahl’s Matilda. I couldn’t get enough of what those wonderful words had to teach me.

As a writer, I am clearly biased when it comes to books. I have spent my life in awe of, crying at, laughing with, and sometimes even screaming at the pages of, books. Books are not just pieces of paper covered in the ink symbols we call the written word, but they are the door to limitless possibilities.

  1. important point. books only need to be supplied in proportion to the amount that’s necessary, especially in this generation when Most people don’t like reading hard copies of books. soft copies are more in vogue now
