Back to School

The month of September always has that ‘back to school’ feel to it, even when you haven’t been in academia for years. We have lots of new non-fiction books in, so do come in to see if there’s any new books on subjects you’ve always wanted to learn more about. Topics of recent publications include the lighthouses of Britain, Neville Cardus and the golden age of cricket, Japanese culture, and the war in Kosovo, to name just a few.¬†Our non-fiction book of the month, The Twittering Machine, is a must-read about the internet and humans’ relationship with it.

For younger children who are about to start school, and might be feeling a bit nervous, we have lots of books which celebrate the experience, including our wonderful picture book of the month, The Pigeon HAS to go to School!.
