It feels good to know that a person of such stature as Harry Potter author, J.K. Rowling, has a high regard for the importance of libraries. In a report by the Guardian.
Rowling compared libraries to the World-Between-The-Worlds from CS Lewis’s Narnia books, “where visitors could enter a thousand different worlds by jumping into different pools”. “When I got my eldest daughter a library card I felt as though I had bought her citizenship of that same fabulous world,” she said.
Rowling together with 150 other authors have pledged to support public libraries to change its public image. I wonder if Filipino authors have the same conviction as their foreign counterparts?
