Had a very interesting evening listening to a talk about whales, dolphins and sea otters. Really enjoyed the talk and the opportunity to ask questions about these sea creatures. The library facilities were first class.

Called in, and found something possibly useful in a 1910 newspaper. Having newspapers on microfilm is a great resource. They have some in Larne, but the viewing machine was moved out into the main area where window reflections make it harder to see the dim,...More
