I was brought up by libraries.

Don’t tell my mum that, she’d be horrified. She and Dad taught me manners and ethics and the importance of education and all sorts of important stuff like that.

It was Dogsthorpe Library though where, at 6 or 7 years old, I picked up the hardback that I loved and carried around on visits, on and off, until I was old enough to check it out properly, then buy it when I was a teenager (paperback), then read it and love it and have my life enriched by points of view I would have never, ever met in lovely Dogsthorpe.

So – why do I love Libraries? Because they widen our lives and our experience. Libraries take you out of yourself and your surroundings and prepare us all for a wider, richer life.

Which is not half bad.
