No brownie points or cake for anyone guessing where this might be (sorry!), apart from it being my upcoming workplace for a few weeks… This is therefore also a segue into more regular blog posts, which I realise is something that has slipped off my radar rather dramatically over the past few months.

Tip: If you’re keen to find out the location of this library, just click the image! I’m really looking forward to going, because of it’s interesting early 20th century Irish collection and wonderful garden. Apart from cataloguing, I’ll also be helping out with some visitor engagement.

In preparation for this new workplace, I decided to revisit some of the other library desks I’ve used, such as here at Erddig.

Working arrangements – not the most ergonomically sophisticated, but with plenty of opportunity for some exercise! The room I was working in was on the top floor, which meant carrying boxes of books up and down the stairs.
