Remember ...

If not now, when?

Food For Brain And Belly

 Yesterday was another action-packed kiddywinks day.
There was a fun reading and craft event for the holidaying children at the Guille-Alles Library in town, here as it is now on the left of the picture.

The Library was founded in 1888 by two returning Guernsey carpenters who had been inspired by and were in-awe of a library they had frequented whilst working in New York. 

Messrs Guille and Alles had a vision which they turned into a reality many years later through dogged determination.  Since then, the practical results of their dream and go-get spirit have touched so many grateful readers looking for knowledge, their actions have fed many hungry brains.

The building (outside and in) hasn't really changed too much since these early photographs, thankfully.  

I've used the Library since childhood, so it is wonderful that today's generation is still enjoying all that it has to offer.  

We had a great time!

Later, with freshly trimmed fringe :-) ...

... I slipped into Next Slim Jeans here, Woolovers silk/cotton cardi in navy, similar in sale here, and an old printed camisole from Next.

And this is getting kinda embarrassing - I also slipped into that H&M shirt.  Again!

Dressed for the pub, I joined up with some lovely girlies for a catch-up curry night at The Last Post.
A great night, lots of chatting and just a little wine ...

How did your local library come about?
Has it changed much over the years?
Is it still a fun place to visit?!

A la perchoine.
