    Wow! So much in three short months! What am amazing achievement for you and Leith Library! Well done to you, Emily, and the clever Leith Library folks! And thanks again for inviting me to share my memories of Leith for Book Week Scotland. It was one of the highlights of last year for me – and Aunty Sue 😉 Very much looking forward to reading future posts and visiting my favourite library in 2013!
