From the Reference Desk

I do love when people come to me with questions I can answer. We ate a small public library, with an equally limited non-fiction section. The collection focuses on cook books, to be honest. But once in a while there's a reference question I can answer.

Today it was about the Tudors - "before Henry VIII". Given that there is only one Tudor monarch before Henry VIII, you might think this was easy. It wasn't. Nevertheless I sent the questioner home with some helpful - and accurate - information, and am pleased to have done so. It may not be a great collection, but I can find what's needed anyway
