Jackie Winter worked for 22 years in Dorset County Libraries. A colleague and friend had previously been a Boots library assistant and clearly very much enjoyed the work. Jackie became intrigued by the many differences between public and subscription libraries. She began writing articles about BBL but the research was so fascinating that a book became the inevitable result. One of her favourite writers is Dorothy Whipple, most of whose books were published in the interwar years and would have been enjoyed by many a Boots Booklover. Jackie Winter is an avid reader and a loyal member of Wimborne Library. Had she belonged to Boots library she would undoubtedly have been an envious Class B subscriber.
