Hello. I have just joined up and am looking forward to reading all the various posts in the forum.
I'm a true Chalet School fan and I have a good selection of Chambers books and Girls gone by publishers. I don't have all of the unabridged books as of yet, but I do know the ones that were the most heavily cut and I have tried to obtain these.

I'm a librarian at a Canadian library. I work in the processing department, that is I get to see all the new books and then prep them for delivery to the libraries in my area. Needless to say I bog down very quickly in pre ordering new books and materials for myself.

I love to garden and my husband and I love to visit historic sites.

I'm hesitant about joining this forum as I don't know how active it is, but I hope to fit in quickly and if anyone would like to suggest places to visit on the site, please do.

Welcome, Mair!

The CBB used to be very active, but unfortunately that's fallen off recently, so new members are extremely welcome. There are plenty of discussions in Special Sixth and Lemon Biscuits - please add any comments you've got :D . New views are always interesting, and often kick-start things again.

Hello Mair, and welcome! Looking forward to seeing you elsewhere on the board, and as Alison says, please do comment on anything that interests you.

Welcome Mair! I have just celebrated ten years on the CBB and have enjoyed every minute though I have viewed with sadness the reduction in activity caused in part by the development of a CS facebook group (to which I don't belong).

But there is still enough going on to make visiting regularly worthwhile and as Alison says your presence may well kickstart some new activity!

Welcome, Mair, from a fellow Canadian - my Board name gives me away, doesn't it? (I'm actually an ex-pat Brit, but as we've lived here for over 40 years, and have dual citizenship, I count myself as Canadian as well.)

I'm coming up for 15 years on here, don't comment all that often, but enjoy following the various threads.
