#whatsyourstory – Meet Jean

Jean image (2).jpgLast week we shared with you details of Bill Hyland’s great invention and this week’s post tells you all about another Leeds Libraries ambassador – Jean Murgatroyd.

Grandmother Jean Murgatroyd, from Armley, wanted to expand her social circle. So she joined the ‘knit-and-natter’ group that meets at her local library. She went on to learn how to knit and every week, Jean and her friends spend a happy afternoon knitting, chatting and relaxing over a cup of tea and a biscuit (or two). Although Jean admits she gets her stitches back-to-front sometimes, it’s a highlight of her week – and she’s always got a homemade gift for her beloved grandchildren. Whilst her husband has been poorly, Jean finds the library a great place to ‘be around friends’ as it takes her mind off things and she always feels welcome.

Now you’ve met two more of our Leeds Libraries ambassadors, could you be the next? If one of the many services available at Leeds Libraries has helped you, we want to know. Tweet us or write on our Facebook page using the hashtag #whatsyourstory, or email us at whatsyourstory@leeds.gov.uk, and let us know how we’ve helped you.
