What’s the point of the public library?

That’s the subject up for discussion tomorrow morning on BBC Radio 4 as Quentin Letts, along with Sir Andrew Motion, Tim Coates and arts minister Ed Vaizey debate whether people are losing sight of the original purpose of public libraries. The programme starts at 9.00am, but should be available on the BBC iPlayer shortly after.

Staying with radio, My life in 5 books starts soon on BBC Radio Scotland. In this series Stuart Cosgrove speaks to figures from the literary world, including Val McDermid, Tony Parsons and Anthony Horowitz,  about the books they hold dear.
