Inter-Library Loan system

If you’ve looked at my web site, you’ll know that the Canadian photographer Frank W Micklethwaite is in one of the branches I’m researching.

A book featuring his photographs, called Micklethwaite’s Muskoka, by John Denison, was published some years ago. I enquired at my local library, and they said they could find a copy for me to borrow – and they have – and it’s a wonderful book.

But the most impressive thing is that the copy of the book came to me in Derbyshire from the library of Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada, on the Inter-Library Loan system. Our English public libraries are under threat from the government’s austerity measures. It would be a terrible shame to loose such a wonderful service.
