Neil Gaiman explains why libraries are important

Explaining why he thought libraries were essential, (Gaiman) said: "We're now in an age of 'too much information'. Libraries and librarians are more important than ever.

"Children want stories. They want information. They want knowledge about the strange world they're in. Saying that the internet can be that is like setting a child free in a jungle and expecting them safely to find things to eat."

Happy G20/G8 weekend everyone!
