Another library refurbishment looks on the cards for the summer. Can't give any details as yet but it's very exciting so watch this space.....

Photographic evidence

As promised, some lovely photos of St Thomas library. Above you can see across the front of the library (the entrance is out of shot to the right) to the seating area. The children's area is in the back left of the shot. Below is a close up in the children's area of the lovely reading tunnel.

This Charming Man

There's a charming young man who does excellent work in the arts in Swansea - you may wish to check out his blog although sadly it has not yet attempted to answer the question

"What is Art?"

He does, however, refer to this blog so I forgive him (and for stealing the concept...)


Bad luck and Trouble by Lee Child.

Over too quickly.

Open for business

All quiet on the blog recently as we have been busy getting the new St Thomas library open for business.

The library opened to the public for the first time on Friday evening for a preview event and it was packed. Loads of local people, tonnes of kids and all the local dignitaries turned up. Balloons were given away, crisps were eaten, and some people even borrowed books!

Staff were resplendant in their purple polo shirts, and the library bug even turned up. The library opened properly on Saturday morning with a jazz band parade - which you can read about here

I will be badgering my colleagues for some photos...
