British Library goes to the dogs!

IN AN effort to raise money for the 'Blue Cross' animal charity, the British Library's Document Supply Centre at Boston Spa, Yorkshire has launched a 2002 dog calendar with a difference featuring the library staff's own dogs.

The full-colour calendar features a page for each month and there is also space for each day of the month to note down those important dates such as your dog's birthday and vet appointments.

The calendar follows on from the success of the library's 2001 cat calendar that sold as far afield as the USA, and a new version of this is also available. All profits from the sale of the dog calendar will be going to 'The Blue Cross' animal charity, which provides care for abandoned animals and veterinary services for pet owners on low incomes.

Celia Lee, a Library security officer, and Doreen Bonas, Manager of the Library's Printing unit, the driving forces behind the calendar said, "All photos in the 2002 dog calendar were sent in by members of staff at the Library's Boston Spa Site. I hope we can repeat and improve upon last years calendar sales, and raise a lot of money for this very worthwhile charity".

The calendar costs just 3 plus 50p postage and is available to buy from Doreen Bonas or AnnPreston, The British Library, Boston Spa, Wetherby, West Yorkshire LS23 7BQ, cheques made payable to 'The British Library".
