McCartney backs library stars plan

Sir Paul McCartney has given the thumbs up to plans to dedicate a revamped city centre library to legends of the stage and screen.

In January, Liverpool City Council announced plans to dedicate different areas of the redeveloped Central Library to local writing, cinematic and musical greats.

A shortlist was drawn up and members of the public were encouraged to have their say on who and what should become a permanent fixture at the library.

A council spokesman said: "Sir Paul McCartney was a popular choice to be added to the Literary Liverpool panel which will cover the back of the building and celebrates writers who were born, lived, worked, visited or were influenced by the city."

All the finalists, or their families, were contacted to let them know they had been selected.

The spokesman said the libraries and archives team received a raft of replies, including a note from the song-writing legend which said: "I would be very happy for my name to be used on the external cladding of the redeveloped Liverpool Central Library and Archive. Thank you for doing me the honour."

TV writer Carla Lane, poet Roger McGough and author Anne Baker have also made the final list and have expressed their happiness, and relatives of poet Adrian Henri were said to be "delighted".
