Alphabe Thursday … M is for Museum.

August 16, 2012

M is museum; to be precise the Museum of English Rural Life ; where I work.  I am a library assistant to the Librarian and Rare Book Cataloguer; in the Special Collections Department in the museum.
I work very closely with the rare books, their classification, preservation and storage.  I also work with the researchers who come daily to the Reading Room.
It is a position I enjoy and celebrate daily in my blog and twitter.

    That sounds like a really interesting job to do. I just love the feel of books, although I have to admit that I will get an e-reader. However, to hold and read a real book… is very different.

    Oh my. What a magnificent and fascinating thing to do every day.

    It would be cool to have work you are so passionate about.

    I really like the artwork at the top of this post. That peacock is quite majestic.

    Thank you for linking.

      The peacock is a stain glass window in the reading room. The reading room was once the dining room looking out over magnificent gardens wich have been recently redone.
