Once again it has taken me far too long to get around to writing up a couple of library visits I’ve enjoyed in recent months. They were both organised by the lovely NY Librarians meet-up group, and were to places which I hadn’t come across before, so as always I was keen to participate (which raises the perennial question: are librarians as a profession inherently more inquisitive than others?!). On Friday 21st June we took in the Nolen Art Library, and Wednesday 10th July found us at Material Connexions.
So, no prizes for guessing which book I’ve been reading recently then. It’s been on my ‘to read’ list for ages, and I finally reached the top of the waiting list for a library copy last week. Naturally the fact that I hadn’t read it didn’t stop me having an opinion about it, and notwithstanding my ignorance I’d even chipped in to a recent twitter discussion about it (beautifully written-up by Jo here), so it’s nice finally to be up to speed on what everyone else is talking about!
