Day's Dying Glory

A Tale of 30 Libraries

There have been a lot of lovely things said about libraries throughout the years. Einstein himself said "the only thing that you absolutely have to know, is the location of the library" and so we can assume that the brainiest people know and love their local libraries.

Couple that with the fact that, sometimes, authors can get randomly very excited about throwaway suggestions that their publishers make (yes, folks, that's right and they are known to be a particularly stubbon bunch!) and then you have the "Tale of 30 Libraries" initiative that we are running prior to the launch of Day's Dying Glory.

Copies of Day's Dying Glory were sent anonymously to 30 libraries around the country, from Shetland to the Isles of Scilly! The author was happy for us to make the selection, and we chose libraries that had a link to the locations in the book, or to the author, or just ones that we liked the look of! 

Here are the libraries we sent the book to: 

Orkney Library

Bromsgrove Library, Worcestershire

Whitby Library

Hereford Library

Shetland Library

Newcastle Library

West Norwood Library, Lambeth

Perth and Kinross Library

Weybridge Library

Blairgowrie Library

Crowle Library

Bishop Auckland Library

Canton Library, Cardiff

Ballymena Library

Dingwall Library

Penzance Library

Ulverston Library

Aldeburgh Library

Library of Birmingham

Mitchell Library, Glasgow

Brough Library, East Yorkshire

Sevenoaks Library

Portree Library

Mansfield Central Library

Aberyswyth Library

Oakmere Library, Potters Bar

National Library of Scotland

Wigtown Library

Bath Central Library

St Mary's Library, Scilly Isles

I can tell you, packaging thirty parcels (brown paper packages tied up with string!) took a lot longer than we were expecting, but it was worth it to know that the book was Out There.
