About Fleur, our Lady Librarian ...
What does a typical day at work involve?
I work with issuing books, returns, memberships, registering new borrowers and reference enquiries.
I think librarians are amazing as they work with the public every day and are always calm and helpful.

How we created the Lady Librarian garment
Books, computer-keyboard keys, foam core, recycled belt, recycled jacket, recycled wedding skirt, sequins.
The skirt is held together with pins and staples, which made it really tricky to handle.
