image - library week 2009This week is Library Week, so we are celebrating just how amazing we are.

Here are some facts (some well known / others not so) that give you a small insight into just how much happens behind the scenes every day. There are a lot of people hard at work to make the library an amazing place to visit every day.

    • An average of 700 new people join our Library network every month.
    • Looking for some financial help to achieve your dreams? Visit our website, and you will find Fundview and Breakout databases. These provide grant and funding information for community groups and scholarships for school, polytechnic or travel; through to funding for sports and arts schemes; personal development funds; and academic and non-academic funding for individuals.
    • The gold used for decorating the books that come through the Bindery doesn’t have any gold in it! The colour is in fact a pigment.
