Title Story: A Reflection on Lockdown #2

Silence please! For this poem by librarian Sarah Fletcher, painting a verbal impression of Guernsey's second lockdown using only book titles from our collection.



The invisible enemy - Channel Islands invaded. The fear bubble. Guernsey people Endangered. Isolated island.

Learning without schoolMotivating students to learn, Seize the day, Learn as you play.

In a time of distance. The world of masks. The consolation of nature - Unknown Guernsey, Ruettes tranquilles: life in the slow lane.

Get started in creative writing, Get running, Get up and gouache!

Learn to sew, Acrylics, Belly dancing for fitness.

Lose weight and get fit - The pop-up gym, The high intensity workout.

Time to eat...Overcoming binge eating! 

Guernsey moods? Tomorrow will be a good day - The sun does shine. Hopeful hearts - We'll meet again. Guernsey: our island home. Back from the brink

(Or should that be the Brink??)
