Owton Manor Branch Library, Harlepool
“I just issued your book!”
proclaimed Library and Community hub Assistant Anita Gaffrey when I explained who I was and what I’m doing with a folder full of library cards! Hartlepool community hub library is a special little space with gorgeous displays in the children’s library lovingly prepared by staff. On entering the space music was playing and I spied a very dapper elderly couple slow dancing in an attached hall. Anita recommended the picture book Giraffes Don’t Dance by @giles_andreae & @guyparkerrees and so@i borrowed it with my new Hartlepool library card.
