Hi, I’m Ade, & I shall be the Voice of the Library next week.
First off, I’m not a librarian: I’m actually a nursing assistant on a mental health ward in Bristol. However, I’m also a part-time student at Bristol University (studying for a BA in English Literature & Community Engagement), and an avid user of & lover of libraries: I can remember going to the local library in Newton Abbey with my mum as a 5-year-old.
So, what am I going to talk about? In Bristol there is a bit of a library controversy at the moment, as the Mayor wants to put a school in the Central Library, so we’ll definitely talk about that:also I want to look at libraries as therapeutic environments…..Now, don’t be scared- it’s just I think that libraries are good for the mind and the soul, so hopefully we can get some debate on that going.
I’m looking forward to this- hope you enjoy it!
