Save our libraries, author Kate Mosse says to councils

1 February 2011 Last updated at 16:01 GMT

Author Kate Mosse explains the day of action planned for Saturday to send a message to politicians about the campaigns to save library services.

The author accepts councils have to balance the books - with threats to 400 libraries and 50 mobile libraries - but makes the cases for keeping the centres of knowledge.

She said: "This is not a party political issue, some of the worst offenders are Labour councils, some Conservative, I suspect politicians of all shapes, colours and sizes have been surprised by the depth of feeling about this issue. This really is local democracy at work."

Each week, the Daily Politics offers a platform to a famous person to make a film with their views on a subject before debating them in the studio.
