Thanks to Deputy Mayor Asher Craig, Robert Harrison at the library and everyone who came to the handover on the 25th Jan.

Bruce said: "Finding books for the library reflects my love of Georgia and Georgian friends. It has been a pleasure to help the BTA establish the collection as a public resource. The books celebrate 30 years of city twinning established by Paul Garland in 1988. Without the link I may never have discovered Georgia. Gaumajos! "
