Authors J.K. Rowling, Salman Rushdie, and Philip Pullman are among those who are lending their support to the "Love Libraries" campaign. Part of an effort in the UK to help "galvanize support for public libraries and combat their growing image problem," the "Love Libraries" campaign has enlisted the help of 150 celebrities, including JKR. The Guardian reports:

"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."
