On 19 November we celebrated our 10th birthday with a party and inaugural anniversary lecture by Jeanette Winterson at the British Library; the very location Miranda McKearney, Anne Sarag and Debbie Hicks had launched The Reading Agency 10 years previously.

During the evening young library volunteers from several London boroughs filmed guests' birthday messages for a video which will appear here shortly. We were overwhelmed with birthday messages via email, facebook and twitter. The messages are below but we'd love some more - please email them to Ffion Dean on email@example.com or tweet us your happy birthday message.
