Sue Ball writes about the artist led project in Staffordshire libraries, which commemorates not only those who fought and died during World War 1 but also the women whose domestic, everyday lives contributed to fighting the war on the home-front.
Sue Ball is Stock, Services and Activities Manager at Staffordshire Libraries and is Chair of ASCEL, the Association of Senior Children’s and Education Librarians.
Sue Ball shares practical examples of how public and schools libraries work with young people to help them stay safe online, recognise fake news and develop critical literacy skills
