Church Street Library’s innovative twinning activities (see previous posts) seem to have caught the imagination, with local press picking up the story – yesterday it featured on the BBC Local Live News!
Cllr Steve Summers, Westminster City Council’s Cabinet Member for the Community, has said in a recent press release about the project:
“The exchanging of books between the two libraries is great news for our residents as it provides a very useful resource for library users looking to improve their French language skills.
“Being able to communicate in another language can greatly increase your employment opportunities, so this twinning arrangement could prove invaluable in helping to improve the lives of our residents.
“It’s also an arrangement which will help build a greater cultural understanding between the two cities as we work with our Parisian counterparts in sharing best practice and continually work to find new and innovative ways to improve our library service.”
The project continues, with an exhibition of photographs of the library and locale of Place des Fetes opening in Church Street Library later this week.
