Rhyming plea over library closures (UK)

Gruffalo author Julia Donaldson has penned a poem in protest at planned library closures. The writer, who was named Children's Laureate and awarded the MBE last year, said she had used libraries since she was a child and still visited her local branch to research and write her best-selling books. Her poem, released on Friday to mark National Libraries Day, describes them as places to "meet your heroes, old and new, from William the Conqueror to Winnie the Pooh"
