Department stores firm John Lewis is to work in partnership with Suffolk Libraries on the Get Connect initiative to promot library eBooks and eReaders.
The employee-owned business has already been working successfully with Cambridgshire’s library service,
Its John Lewis at home store, at Futura Park in Ipswich, has also presented Suffolk Libraries with a copy of a book marking the 150th anniversary of the business.
The book, “A Very British Revolution”, tells how John Spedan Lewis transformed a clutch of Victorian department stores into a revolutionary, employee-owned business.
The book also reflects the emerging consumerism of the Victorian world, the social upheavals of the 20th Century and the globalised world of retailing today.
