Library cards, assorted, current

Libraries are some of my favourite places and I currently hold cards for three university libraries, my local library, and the British Library. I use this library access both to plan university teaching and to find inspiring ideas for stories and projects.

My favourite library discoveries have included: the travelogue of a Victorian lady in Iceland; a book that describes molecules and their attributes one by one, from water to complex carbon chains; a 1912 cookbook that proved to me how badly we used to overcook cabbage (but also had some brilliant biscuits).
