Last year I joined East Renfrewshire’s Library & Information Service for a four week placement, as part of my Masters degree.   During that time I got to meet and work with an amazing bunch of librarians, including the inspirational Liz McGettigan.  It was my job to evaluate the impact of  their Look at Libraries festival, which offered users opportunities to attend and participate in a range of events at their local library:
Author events
Theatre workshops for children
Genealogy seminars
Learning workshops
Pottery classes
Cookery demos
Comedy evenings

What’s all this got to do with public libraries, you may ask?  Well, quite a lot actually…libraries aren’t just about books anymore, or hadn’t you heard? 😉 

My name in print – how exciting!  
My final report has just been published by Library Review –  If you’re lucky enough to have an Emerald password and you’re interested in the impact that this festival had on the local community then check it out on Emerald

Alternatively, e-mail me direct and I’d be happy to share my findings with you.
