Out of the Box – January 2020

Well! That’s the first month over for 2020.

How quickly time goes when you are unpacking the great wall of boxes containing new library material. Just when our Collection Management Team seem to make a gap, the door bell rings and in comes a new delivery! Somehow it never seems to stop, but that’s what it takes to keep new material coming in on a regular basis.

Have fun exploring!
