Fiona Edwards

Fiona is the lead on Opening the Book’s online training courses for both public and school libraries,  providing mentoring and support to learners in many different countries. Her previous background in teaching English and drama and educational publishing is highly relevant but Fiona has enjoyed the move online, where she can respond to individual workplace contexts. Fiona also plays a major role in our library design projects, especially in planning how library collections are mapped onto discovery layouts and working on detailed display and merchandising.  Away from work, Fiona likes to read and talk about books. She enjoys singing and walking – sometimes at the same time. Fiona is online editor for Opening the Book’s successful whichbook site and is always looking for unusual books that readers don’t discover for themselves. Working with a great Whichbook team to share these books with readers via our unique website is the thing that gives her a real buzz.
