with Nettie Day. Unpacking My Baggage. aka Christine Wallace for LIBR500: Foundations of Information Technology. Packing tips? AskNettieDay@hotmail.com. Let’s begin with unpacking the collection. I started with all kinds of vintage bags & cases. 5 suitcases (various makes)
the collection became more
My boyfriend even had a convertible. Finally the big day came: we were off to Victoria!
The car broke down.
We went by bus instead.
Don’t use vintage suitcases for your travel needs.
Especially if you have to take the bus.
They are very heavy.
I have a suitcase packed with important photos, mementos, and archaeological finds.
One very important item can’t be packed into a suitcase:
Aunt Em comes to visit
Helma Zukas, Librarian at Bellehaven Public Library.
She brings with her a suitcase
filled with memories...
…and a reason for murder?

Mystery books of all kinds (not just with suitcases in them) can be found at the Vancouver Public Library (where I work as a Library Technician).

Of course, you can learn a lot by going through their bags.
I am currently studying to become a librarian, just like Helma Zukas. I am also writing a murder mystery story featuring a librarian as the main character, just like Jo Dereske. Stay tuned for an “Ask Nettie Day” installment!
