Coming home

Oh my goodness, where does time go? Seems no time at all since I last wrote here…

Since June I have had a fabulous week in NW Scotland, spent a lot of time planning and co-ordinating Try Reading events and preparing to move office next week.

If you haven’t done so already, please take a look at our Try Reading website which promotes books, new writing  as well as events in libraries. We are really on the countdown to the Rugby League World Cup 2013 now. If you attend Rugby League matches already, why not submit a match report and share your love of the game with others.

I am returning to Manchester City Centre next week, after 3 years in an outpost. Not regrettably to Central Library, which is still a work in progress, but to the Town Hall next door. I hope it will be really good to be back at the heart of things- the City and the Department I work for.

Last week I also attended a training course on Blogging. Have been making it up myself, till now. The course run by DigiEnable really made me reflect on how a Blog can be made more interesting and I hope to inject some of my newly learned skills from now on.


  1. Welcome "home"Hmm I like the idea of a blogging course Jane-sounds very interesting.Will look out for something like that. Have you been to the new library in Liverpool yet? If not come up and we'll give you the tour x

  2. Thanks Denise- I have been to the new Central Library and think it looks fantastic. I'm sure its being very well received by everyone who sees it.
