A colleague gave me this extract last Friday- nearly April fools day! I enjoyed it so much I just had to share it!
“Edith’s daughter, Florence, was very different from her mother. Two of her great interests were the library and whitebaiting. For about twenty years she was librarian at the Wanaka Library. Her system of arranging books seemed rather impractical to many but woe betide anyone who would tried to reorganise her shelves – current new books lived on a shelf at chest height, easiest for reading titles, last year’s new books were on the shelf below and, as they dated, books receded higher and higher on the shelves. Simple!“
