this isn't just any library...'s an H&F library! Well here it is in all it's glory, the sexy new library on the Askew Road that now houses the delivery and sorting office that used to be the bane of my life on Silver Street round the back of Westfield. That truly awful place with truly awful staff who seemed to rejoice in telling you "nah, its not 'ere" has been replaced with a new office in the revamped Askew Road Library.

Time will tell if the service gets any better. But in the meantime what about this marketing strategy of "more than a library"?! I could almost hear the suggestive woman's voice from the M&S ad .. "this isn't just any library .. it's an H&F library". While presumably pouring some cream over a work of Dickens.

Can we expect to see this soon in Pravda?!


  1. I seem to remember a "great victory" for the Council when after the closure of the local post office across the road a new one was to be located inside Askew Road library. It's just a collection place. No stamps, no collections, no services. Bit of a let down although it does save me cycling over to Silver Road every couple of weeks where, incidentally, my parcels, big and small, have always been waiting for the the 30 years I have lived here.
