A library is an arsenal of liberty

 

Sheffield City Library claims this quote is from the most quoted person of all time Anonymous.   However, the internet suggest it might have been Cicero.   Whatever the case empty shelves, even when display shelves,  make the quote look very hollow indeed.

This is shame because today I visited a rather excellent exhibition of Eric Ravilious and friends at the Millennium Gallery in Sheffield.   It claims to have 400 items in the exhibition, a claim I was dubious about until I visited – now I have no doubt at all.
