My favourite things

One of the main reasons for starting this blog was that there was so much to tell – as the very first post said: “It’s about the life of the Libraries & Archives”. There are so very many facets to a public library service; I wanted to help bring more of what we can offer into the light.

After eighteen years in Westminster Libraries (a brief interlude in comparison to the tenure of Malcolm and many others, of course), I’ve rounded up a selection of wonderful things and, with apologies to Rodgers and Hammerstein, persuaded my library-fan children to spare you my singing voice.  As I move on to pastures new, one of the things I will miss the most is editing this blog (I look forward to being a reader from now on). It’s been a privilege.

So long, farewell…

    Thanks Ali for suggesting I could contribute to library blogs not only for Books in the City but in the now deflating spirit of Tri-B cooperation also for the other two boroughs’ blogs on a wide range of subjects with a library service and resources tinge.


  4. Thanks Ali. It just shows how vital libraries are to society and how library staff must be valued now and in the future. After all, it is they who ensure all these wonderful things happen. Long may that continue!
