Clydach Library


This is a nice library, don't you think? I'm pleased to say that the modernisation of libraries in Swansea always includes spending loads of money on new books! Oh, and the liberal splashing about of purple paint which is great if you like that sort of thing - which I do.
Purple is a colour with a solid literary heritage; purple prose, Alice Walker's "The Color Purple" (one of my favourite books), and lots of others I'm sure.

I was talking to a 'special librarian' the other day who works for the Welsh Assembly Govt and he really liked it .. even said the staff were very helpful and welcoming... he wanted to see all libraries looking and feeling so 'with it'

Only a librarian could say "with it" in the 21st Century.
We'll be discussing "street cred" next.

Any librarian is "special" if they work in Clydach Library. Lovely venue.

What is a "special librarian"? Please elaborate "anonymous"!!!!

All Librarians are special, but in this context a special librarian is someone who works in a non traditional setting .. ie not a public, academic, school or law library..

hope this helps

Special librarian's or not - the NEW Clydach library really is the business compared to the old one.
My 3 year old nipper loves going down there, not to mention the Mrs as well. Congrats to all concerned on an excellent job :)
