A letter from Irby on The Wirral
I have two children we live in Irby. If Irby library closes the children will be without a library. I think this is disgusting. I have no transport. It is also part of the village. It should not be allowed to happen.

In his notebook (a wonderful work) in June 1961, Simenon says that he is offered various literary awards but "more touching is the idea of the city of Liège giving my name to the public library in my neighbourhood. I shall attend the opening ceremony. Until the age of eighteen, all my reading was in public libraries, and I feel great gratitude to them".
