Tuddy's link:


I used the Powell Children's Library when I was little, from around age 4/5 if my memory serves.

I started off with my Noddy books, then progressed to Janet & John. I could read reasonably well by the age of 3, but I was too young to go on my own, even though it was a stone's throw from Darlington Street where we lived.

I loved it in there, and I can still smell the beeswax on the varnished floorboards, and the bannister and gallery upstairs.

Sad it had to go.
