"Today a reader, tomorrow a leader." - Margaret Fuller
Janet Tachamani, co-winner of AgeUK Internet Champion award for 2013, seen below with June Whitfield after received the award, was approached by campaigners for the Save Burnage Library Campaign and told of the plight of the library.
Amongst many noble things, Janet is also a 2011 Asham Prize Award winning short story writer and ex English teacher who has very kindly thrown her weight behind our campaign by championing the Save Burnage library campaign. She has written an article on her personal blog about our library.
