I have been working for Derbyshire Libraries since 2010, first as a Library Assistant at Bolsover Library, then Assistant in Charge at Bakewell Library, and have always loved encouraging children to read. I am currently on secondment working to deliver work & money help to people in libraries throughout Derbyshire under the banner of Digital Inclusion. I joined the YLG East Midlands committee in 2015, and am always looking to volunteer for any other opportunities that might further my knowledge of the library world. During 2017 my family are trying to read 1000 picture books to raise awareness of reading and money for charity, which is fantastic fun. In my spare time I love spending time with my family, aspire to be an author of picture books through to adult novels, make amateur films with friends, compose and records music, love acting on stage, blog, play computer games, and never sleeps so I can accomplish all of this.
