"The singer Dolly Parton is extending her Imagination Library scheme to cover all of Scotland. Having already established itself in various communities in the UK and North America, the project distributes a free book every month to children under five. Unlike Philip Pullman, who campaigned to maintain taxpayer funding for libraries, Mrs Parton is demonstrating that government doesn't have to provide all services. Whilst admittedly working with local authorities, funding comes from local businesses, schools, education foundations and other civic organisations." (03/07/11)
