There was another library opened by Carnegie, with Siegfried Bettman the mayor in toe. It was Stoke Library, corner of Kingsway and Walsgrave Road.

You don't know the value of libraries until you need them. Until the lockdown I was using Earlsdon Library regularly, and the volunteers running it are doing great work keeping the place going. It was great to see classes coming in to look at the books and use the facilities. As a school governor we ran an initiative to discover how many books children had in their homes. A surprisingly large number answered none.
