Writing about my favourite places

Tomorrow is National Libraries Day Several librarians from various sectors, including me, are going on a library crawl via the Glasgow Subway. We hope to raise awareness of the good that libraries do by tweeting and blogging our way round.

The Subway is a great way to travel and a humorous presence on Twitter (@GlasgowSubway) – #shoogle is one of their hashtags, and it describes perfectly the motion of their trains. There are only two lines, concentric circles going clockwise and anticlockwise, and the trains are bright orange, hence the nickname “Clockwork Orange” and the reason we decide to call our Library Crawl “In the Loop”. We are very grateful to Elaine Magee of Strathclyde Passenger Transport who picked up on our venture and offered to provide us with shoogle bags to carry our library books around! I wasn’t able to get away from work today, but here are Lauren, Cathy and Isabel picking up the bags from Buchanan Street Station:

We also got mentioned by STV and The Herald. Can’t wait to get Shoogling tomorrow!
