Spot the Empire Librarian's blog

Welcome to a librarian's online musings on libraries, literature and information media.

Congratulations to Will and Kate!


Aviary mirror-co-uk Picture 1Like many, I am excited to read the confirmed news that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their first child!  As a Canadian citizen, part of the British Commonwealth, I am elated to hear of an heir who will one day rule  the throne.

As a Mum,  I too  understand the  unpleasantness of morning sickness , though I am sure that the parents to be are excitedly planning  for the arrival of their child.  Might a recommend a few titles to stock the nursery in Kennsington Palace with?

While I am a librarian , I am a reading cheerleader. The purpose of this library blog is to better promote reading and information literacy to community. I love books, reading to my son,properly placed apostrophes,canoeing, locating the nearest Starbucks, cheering the Montreal Canadians, and Cherry Garcia ice cream.
