Libraries helped shape me into the writer I am today
Hull-born crime writer Penny Grubb credits the time she spent at local libraries as a child for her thirst for words.
Now under-resourced and often under threat of closure, she said it would mean fewer children grow up with a curious nature.
"I think it's terrible what's happening to libraries. They're so important, so children can grow up not just with a love of books but with a love of knowledge," Penny said.
"I think it's short-sighted to close them. If you haven't got a well-informed population, nothing is going to go forward."
