It’s Save Our Libraries Day tomorrow, where fans of books and reading are stepping up to show their support of British Libraries. Philip Pullman, who is one of the many famous names involved in the campaign, has described it as “one of the first great shots across the bows of the cuts battleship.”

Councils all over the country plan on axing their Library services to save money during the budget cuts, claiming that the dwindling numbers of people visiting them means that they won’t be missed.

At least eighty events will take place up and down the country tomorrow, with famous figures such as Kate Mosse, GP Taylor, and Julia Donaldson appearing at protests. Philip Pullman will be joining Mark Haddon at a read-in in Oxfordshire.
