Closed for Winter

Well we had our last day of trading for 2008 yesterday. Business was swift right up to the end of the day despite Joyce freezing in the booth. There was an extremely cold wind whizzing through the front door!! We are hoping to have some building work done on the roof while we're closed - fingers crossed the builders will be available.

Magazines R Us

We've been massively busy over the last few days as we've had a donation of masses of boxes of pagan/witchcraft magazines mainly dating from the 80s and 90s. It's a great collection & thank you to the donor. We're a little daunted as to where they'll all go as we're quickly running out of library shelf space. Graham is ordering more shelves & boxes so we can get them out & then there will be the job of cataloguing. It has been agreed with the donor that any duplicates will be donated elsewhere or sold to raise funds for the library. Thanks also to Liz & Nigel who helped with sorting the magazines on the weekend!
