Neil Gaiman is an award-winning author and a champion of literacy, independent bookstores and libraries. “We have an obligation to support libraries. To use libraries, to encourage others to use libraries, to protest the closure of libraries. If you do not value libraries then you do not value information or culture or wisdom. You are silencing the voices of the past and you are damaging the future.” (from Neil Gaiman's lecture for the Reading Agency, October 2013) http://www.neilgaiman.com Twitter: @neilhimself
