What's this? Cake in the library and not a shush within hearing? It was our great coffee morning at Bethnal Green Library courtesy of librarian Richard and his people. We had a tour round the library, a look at the lovely stained glass (Motherhood, Fatherhood and Peace!), a quick trip to see the magnificent tile work in the ladies and gents, and, ahem, cake of course. Seems we were all thinking along autumnal lines and there were three different types of apple cake available to celebrate apple day. At least Jackie had the forethought to bring along some cheese biscuits. And Janet says that Bethnal Green has the best selection of talking books she's seen in the Borough. Definitely worth a visit for the green location, historic ambience, and the books - of course.
Our thanks go to Clare for organising our outing and to Richard and everyone at the library for giving us such a warm welcome.
Don't forget - if you have not signed the NFWI petition to save our libraries (not everyone is as lucky as us) do please pop along to the online version here.
