Ginette made the decision to become a librarian while working in a Library as a Saturday assistant when she was still at school. She started her career working in public libraries, specialising in reference and local history, and moved to work in schools following a career break. Having worked in different types of schools over the years both as a solo librarian and as part of a team she now manages the libraries of an independent co-educational public school.
"Ginette was brilliant, very interesting and entertaining." - Sharon Klysz, Media Resources Assistant (Library), Highams Park School
