Jo Blaney

I trained as a librarian, then worked as an information officer for the BBC in London and for the Beecham group. In 1999, having married, had two children and moved to Nottinghamshire, I wandered into The Bookcase by chance while waiting for my car to be serviced. Two weeks later I started working in the shop, and I’m still here, though mostly behind the scenes battling with paperwork. I also have responsibility for the Nottinghambooks website and the local books section in the shop, an interest that developed out of my passion for local history.
