Off Our Trolley…

Okay, be honest- how many Easter treats did you consume over the long weekend? We definitely ate quite a lot and there might even still be a few chocolately treats loitering around our office…However, we’re in full-on project mode so we’re going to use that as an excuse to legitimise our sugar snacking!

Many schools across Norfolk will have started back today and what better way to ring in the start of a new term by having a read of the latest edition of our Book Bites newsletter which is now online here. It’s full of information about us and the services we’re offering PLUS lots of other useful and interesting tidbits we think you should know about!

Our current project run means that we’re all getting very behind on our lunch-time reading but Harriet- one of our SLS Librarians- has selected a few titles from our eponymous book trolley as a ‘what we’re reading Wednesday’ special…
