A Falmouth schoolboy tells Pirate FM libraries make a real difference to people's lives.

Ten year old Leon Remphry has launched a petition to keep his branch open after it had its hours cut.

The youngster who has been reading since he was three has collected almost 3, 000 signatures on paper and online.

He wants to spread the message across the UK.

He said: "I really, really love reading, it's really important to read, and it's not just reading in there, people meet up in there, there is internet in there you can get CDs and DVDs in there, it's a great place

"In the same way that a busker needs someone to give him money, an author needs someone to read their books, and it's been proven that reading makes you more intelligent."

You can sign Leon's online petition here.
