To greenly go

The J.B. Priestley Library had a green invasion this week, when an alien, a witch, a dragon and something that is probably a frog beamed, popped or hopped in to exchange their library books or relax with a good read.

They’re all green and so are the new jute eco-bags on sale in the Library.   Though those are actually a very fetching shade of turquoise.

Alison is one of the characters and John took the photos.  Sarah George talked us all into it …

Cashbooks for Rare Books

I’ve just been elected Hon. Treasurer of the CILIP Rare Books and Special Collections Group, the organisation which unites librarians responsible for collections of rare books, manuscripts and special materials. Previously, I’ve arranged marketing, sponsorship, conferences and day events for the Group, thought I’d like to try a different area!
