We were delighted to welcome our local MP, Justin Tomlinson, to our Swindon office today.  Justin is MP for Swindon North, the constituency our Kembrey Park offices are in, and also the Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Libraries.  After a brief tour of the new offices Justin joined the staff and invited school librarians for a coffee and a lively discussion about school libraries.  Justin shared an anecdote from his school days when he was a student librarian, and we had a wide ranging discussion about the current situation in school libraries, the importance of reading and the introduction of eBooks, as well as touching on the upcoming lobby of Parliament in October.
