All the windows in Catty Library are boarded up to stop them getting broken by the workmen who have been swarming around the roof for the past month. Staff are working with miners' helmets. The roof is in bits. The plaster inside the library has been cracked to buggery for years. The floor sags. The walls drip water. The electrics aren't clever. The network is buggered because the Heritage Officer won't let us connect the library to the building next door. And bits of old pigeon drip onto the enquiry desk.
For the third time this week a lady from the Leisure Trust Committee comes in to complain that there's a dandelion growing in the gutter on the front.
