Full of enthusiasm!

After completing in the Race For Life in the City of London in just under 30 minutes I am feeling full of enthusiasm for running – you can see some photos from the run! I’ve also just read Tara Brabazon’s piece lamenting the decline of school libraries in last week’s Times Higher and championing the role of librarians, libraries and information literacy. I said before that I hoped Tara could be our Jamie Oliver and do for libraries, what Jamie did for school dinners – she appears to be rising to that challenge! I quote from her article:

” Chef Jamie Oliver asked parents, teachers and citizens to improve the food being fed to students in school dinners. Turkey Twizzlers, pizza and chips were the targets. But we need a new revolution – a new intervention – not in eating but reading, not dinner ladies but librarians.”
