A day in the life of Wilmslow Library

In 2012 local photographic society 'Lindow 10' took a series of photographs for an exhibition in the library. The images capture frontline and behind the scenes activities and Lindow 10 have produced a video slide show (WMV, 35MB) for us to share. Please note there is no transcript as the video does not contain speech or narration.
