Suffolk libraries information advisor
Hiyaa I’m Dilly and I love animals, being creative, including sustainable creativity, when I’m not spending time interacting with animals or at gigs I can often be found either working or volunteering with young people, their enthusiasm, inquisitiveness and perspectives on the world they live in is a treasure to be part of and to learn from.

I used to work weekends and help run Girls Group in 2022, but now can often be found covering shifts on the weekdays and in school holidays. Radio and music are my other passions and I'm always trying to link them to my library work one way or another!
