A must have for your library...

True Stories And Curious Incidents From A Provincial Library
Libraries are full of stories. Not all of them in books. Amusing, tragic, surreal and eccentric, Reading Allowed is a fascinating insight into the classic British institution that is our local library which will both enchant and delight. It is the story of the library, its staff, and the fascinating group of people who use the library on a regular basis.
After a career as a BBC radio producer, Chris Paling continues to make documentaries for Radio 4 alongside his work in a small-town library in the south of England. He is married with two children.
“Paling's deftly drawn vignettes are frequently funny, sometimes sad and occasionally troubling... Borrow a copy from your local library, if you still have one.” MAIL ON SUNDAY
“There are many detractors who question whether libraries are still relevant in the digital age. Paling's keenly and kindly observed account of his encounters offers a gentle insight as to why they still are.” THE SUNDAY TIMES
