Friday a snapshot from the Library

January 16, 2015

This week I started work with a work experience ‘person’ ; we had a short session before Christmas but now we begin for real.  I share my work with her for a day a week.  It is a good situation;  she gets a chance to see library work at the coal front and I get help and good company.  We began with some items bound for the Childrens Collection ; all were very nice but one huge book took our eyes ; King Arthur’s Wood is a children’s book written and illustrated by Elizabeth Stanhope Forbes. It was first printed in 1904 with a limited print-run of 350 copies.

As we considered adding it to our collections ; we imagined two or three very special children looking at in on the floor in a very elegant house much like the one we work in over a 100 years before.
