I think the key bit of the article is the first sentence, the view is attributed to:

Terry Deary, an apparently lone literary voice to believe that libraries have "had their day"
You can understand the pound signs clouding his views, anyone who thinks that his library loans equal what he should be getting in sales ("If I sold the book I'd get 30p per book. I get six grand, and I should be getting 180,000") is clearly a bit blinkered in their views.
