Wendy Barrett
Often seen with foraging for craft materials.
I started working as a Nursery Nurse. Now at Chantry Library, I enjoy working with children of all ages encouraging imagination learning through play about the environment and nature using recyclable craft materials. Its surprising what you can make with an old box or milk carton. I also love books.

Library and Information Advisor
Hi! I'm Georgia. I've been with Suffolk Libraries for 1.5 years and love to get artsy and crafty from time to time. I'm here as part of your Easter Blank Page Project staff to help support and grow your child's ideas and curiosity.
Mandy Grimwood
Passionate community library manager
I love working with the local community and being able to offer new, exciting opportunities for young people to improve their confidence, self-esteem and aspirations.
Diane Roe
Love words and paint!
The power of the word through literature is vital, and I believe empowers the individual. The act of making art like-wise.
