Children’s authors top library borrowing

For a second year running, seven out of ten of the top authors borrowed from libraries is a children’s author with the Daisy Meadows brand, Jacqueline Wilson and Francesca Simon featuring heavily. The Gruffalo was the most heavily borrowed title over the year. You can read a little more about these figures, produced by the Public Lending Right over on The Bookseller.

And as they, and everyone else points out, surely this is just another excellent reason to keep our libraries open.
