In the days before Google, people used to call their librarians with questions.
“What kind of an apple did Eve eat?”
“Why do 18th century English paintings have so many squirrels in them, and how did they tame them so that they wouldn’t bite the painter?”
“Are Plato, Aristotle and Socrates one and the same person?”
“Is there a full moon every night in Acapulco?”

Do you still call your librarians these days?
What are the roles of our library and librarians these days?
A few weeks ago, Allison wrote an article urging you to share your view as to how you want Hampshire’s library service to develop.
Hampshire County Council have issued a Draft Strategy for the Library Service.
The library consultation is available until today (Saturday 16th January 2016). If you haven’t shared your view yet, please grasp this last chance.
Share your views: Future of Hampshire libraries
To give your views on their Strategy, the questionnaire is available via the Library Service web page.
Paper questionnaires are available from Hampshire libraries or mobile libraries.
Alexandra Kelly, an 11-year-old girl, wrote a letter to highlight how much she and her family value her local library in Yateley.
Hampshire County Council’s Executive Member for Culture, Recreation and Countryside, Councillor Andrew Gibson, met Alexandra Kelly at Yateley library.
