Happy New Year – New Library facilities

Apologies for the delay in posting the pictures of the New Bradford Local Studies Library but as expect the run up to Christmas with a young family was hectic but fun!

Opening day Monday 9th November

Waiting guests see inside for the first time...

 And the West Yorkshire Archive Service are just through some doors in a light and airy room

Later in the afternoon the first talk was held in the Library....

The following day I had arranged a small tweetup for those on twitter interested in local history or genealogy we had a quick lunch then, took part in the flashmob read and then visited the library.

Soon the index’s started to reappear in the local studies library...

As did the digital microfilm scanner – well worth a try if you get a chance there will soon be 2 machines...

And a new piece of kit a large scanner for books / maps etc

If you happened to be passing the City Library you might have spotted me giving a talk to school children on the Bradford Sweet Poisoning of 1858 in the new children's Library
All the feedback was positive and we congratulate Sue Caton and all her staff and FOBALS (Friends of Bradford Archives and Local Studies) for making it a success.
