Children's literature needs our libraries

Mary Poppins, Harry Potter and Peter Pan were centre stage at the Olympic stadium – let's keep them there, says Judith Elkin
"It is vital that authors, publishers and other literary organisations encourage this two way relationship between writers and readers – libraries have always made it a priority. New developments at the Hive, the revolutionary Idea Stores in several London boroughs and ventures such as the Ministry of Stories are building on this strong heritage."
