Home is a complicated word. It’s an idea – “where the heart is”– the emotional centre of family life. Home is geography: “Country roads, take me home, to the place I belong…” You know the tune. Home is also the building where we live and play with paint cans and drapery.
From planning a renovation, to reorganizing your closet, to filling your rooms with laughter and music, the Library is rich with resources for making your home a better place to be. And the best thing about the Library is the way that one thing leads to another, and another – come to think of it, just like the virtual world.
My name is Jane and I have enjoyed an eclectic career that has included a design business and writing about design trends for the Calgary Herald and CanWest. At the same time (and for many years), I have worked for the Calgary Public Library. You could call me a multi-tracker or just conclude that I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.
For sure, I’m a design groupie who can’t wait to tell you about all my favourite things at the Library and make connections for you in the real and virtual worlds. I work with others who also share my obsession and probably have a few of their own. From time to time, they will be punting their projects and ideas your way.
We hope you will join the conversation.
