A breath of fresh-er

I have to confess that I didn’t have very high expectations of the plannedĀ Marylebone Library outreach visit to the Royal Academy of Music for their Freshers’ Week – how very, very wrong I was! At times it felt like we were under siege – in a good way, of course – and we joined up nearly 50 enthusiastic students within our two hour window.

My colleagues Mulgeta and Anthony were great support and David’s excellent display helped to lure them in. Once we had their attention, the students were impressed that they could use one library card for three library boroughs and although the Royal Academy has a well stocked library, they were pleased to learn of our award-winning collections at Westminster Music Library, as well as the online music resources on offer. We will definitely being paying them another visit this time next year!
