From Inis Magazine... Books Are For Life...

In this marvelous interview from Keith Gray in Inis Magazine, the obvious is pointed out.... books are for life, not just for homework. Something we need to consider now in mid-summer, as we are preparing our children for going back to school. A very important consideration, especially when we are getting so much negative information on the state of support for our libraries, our bookshops and with the ever-growing push towards digital media for children's books. Kids need books.. you know, paper and print.
And, again, I ask everyone to give some thoughts towards an incentive here to give every school age child a public library card. This would be a fantastic gift towards literacy, imagination and education. Any thoughts?
