Status Update

Library Update 7th August 2022

Huge thanks to the many volunteers who worked hard to make our “Oz” day such a success, and to all those who came along to join in the fun. Together, the quilt raffle and the event raised £1,700. Lots of photos on our Oz page.

Our new mural from artist Grace Jandrell is finished. Do come and take a look.

Our Open Gardens weekend went down well — we sold over 200 tickets and raised £1850. Our thanks to all the gardeners and to those who visited.

Our pre-school events Storytime and “Sing and a Story” are now paused for the summer holidays and will restart in September. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for an announcement.

Our weekly Craft club and Coder Dojo are also now paused for the summer holidays and will restart in September.

Our library in Lowedges is open on Mondays and Wednesdays. Click here for more info and here for details of our new events program at Lowedges. 

Our coffee mornings continue on Thursdays. They run from 10.00 to 11.30  and offer tea, coffee, biscuits, and conversation. Sometimes there’s cake!

We offer free help to use your smartphone, tablet or laptop each Friday morning. Drop-in sessions from 10.00 to 11.30. More detail here. We also have some SIM cards available for people suffering from “data poverty” (e.g. unable to afford the monthly payments for a mobile phone contract).

Family Cinema: The Wizard of Oz

Saturday 6 August at 6.30pm
The Wizard of Oz

To round off our “Oz” day in the library we’re showing the iconic movie from 1939, reckoned to be the most watched film of all time. With songs such as “If I only had a brain”, “We’re off to see the Wizard”, and of course “Somewhere over the Rainbow” this is a movie that all children should see.

Doors open at 6.00pm, film starts 6.30

You can book online using this link, or ask the wizard for a ticket during the day.

Watch the trailer here.

Evening Cinema: West Side Story

Friday 2nd September at 7.30pm:
West Side Story

The recent remake of the classic Bernstein and Sondheim musical. In 1957 against the backdrop of the decaying tenements in the San Juan Hill neighbourhood, the constant threat of the wrecking ball and two warring gangs, an unexpected whirlwind romance begins. The film from Spielberg, his first musical, stars Ansel Elgort, Rachel Zegler and Ariana DeBose

Doors open / refreshments 7.00pm, film starts 7.30.

This is a free showing. (You may make a donation on the night.) To be sure of a place please book ahead using this link.
