Libraries get attacked by popular author

I was notified of this by a post in one of my LinkedIn groups. Terry Deary is attacking public libraries and saying that they are not useful to society anymore. Mostly because they are undercutting the bookselling industry and his own earnings. His main assertion is elitist in that he assumes there isn’t an improvished class. There is and denying adults access to computers, books and other self-improvement tools is cruel and unusual punishment. Deary is still making money from this group of people though, who are probably borrowing his books from their local library, so what is his problem? http://m.guardian.co.uk/books/2013/feb/13/libraries-horrible-histories-terry-deary
