We hope you had a great Easter break and look forward to hearing what you were reading! The Librarians are currently working their way through the Carnegie shortlist as part of the fantastic TRS Carnegie Shadowing book group known collectively as The Cosmic Ravensbourne Readers.
Among the things that happened in the book world over Easter are:
