Stumbled across this image of an abandoned library in the former Soviet Union, on Gawker.com
Imagine having to preserve and catalogue all of those books!

I am getting very sad as it just looks like a onderfully exciting challenge to me now! We should get a team of volunteers together for a trip and create order out of chaos in no time.?
Can we not just make something pretty out of papier mache?
I have happy memories of making a piggy bank in primary school with newspaper, PVA glue and a balloon…think how many piggy banks we could make from that lot of paper!! 😀

I passionately believe in the potential of public
libraries to educate, challenge and inspire and am currently investigating the social value of public libraries.
My research interests encompass public library evaluation, quantitative and qualitative methodologies, auditing, and the nature of public library services in the twenty-first century.
