We’ve used the After-school Club since 2006 and I thought that I’d post a few reasons why: 1. Good quality childcare: Rated ‘good’ by Ofsted, the club provides a wide range of activities, toys, games and runs trips during the holidays, the staff are friendly and approachable and the children love going. 2.

At Christmas-time in 1970, my Granddad stopped smoking and developed a cough.  He was subsequently diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer, a Pancoast tumour, involving his right lung, 1st rib, clavicle and brachial plexus. My Granddad was treated with radio therapy (experimental at the time), at the Royal London Hospital, Whitechapel in May 1971 and the family were […]

On the 6th March 2008 I did a quick search on “library” within iGoogle’s apps (via ‘Add Stuff’) and found various truly Library related apps (as opposed to things with library in the title that are nothing to do with ‘libraries’), which I categorised as per the below.  This (and other research) has informed the […]

Earlier this month Kathryn Greenhill coined the term “LibPunk” in her blog: “Librarians using non-proprietary products and groupings not based on institutional alliances to practice their craft and communicate their practice?
