Up and running at Lowedges!

Feb 12th 2020 – Our first day of operation at Lowedges

Meet Akin … one of our newest volunteers, who will be working regularly in the new library. Akin comes to us with experience of working in other libraries around Sheffield, notably Firth Park, where he was “Children’s Champion” for three years. 

Our thanks also to Lucy, Ann, Patrick, Wendy, and the others who have worked hard to turn our vision of a library in Lowedges into reality.

One of the first families to visit us. This was taken just before we received a wonderfully chaotic deluge of children and young mums after school finished. Altogether we signed up 13 new members.

This young reader was keen to get stuck straight in.

The library will be open from 2pm – 5pm each Wednesday and 10am – 1pm each Thursday. Come and visit us in the Lowedges Community Centre (near the top entrance to Greenhill Park).

New Books December 2019

New Books for a New Decade

We’ve recently put over 100 new adult titles on the shelves to tempt you in 2020. Come back in the new year (we re-open on 3 Jan) and check them out. You’ll find them on the central blue display stand. In the meantime, here’s a sampling.  There are new children’s books too!

Book Club

New book club!

Due to the popularity of our existing book club we’re starting a new one! The club meets in the library in the evening of the third Wednesday of each month. The new group will likely start on 19 Feb.

Places will be limited so if you would like to join please send an email to kirsty.atkin1@gmail.com

Knit and Natter

Do you knit? Would you like to learn?

Lynn Munro runs a Knit and Natter  group in the library on the first and third Wednesday of each month from 10.00 to 12.00.  Experienced knitters and beginners welcome. We can provide needles and wool if you don’t have them.

For more information email Lynn at lynnimunro@googlemail.com

Confused by Computers?

Are you confused by computers? Do you need help with filling in online forms? Or would you just like to get more out of your laptop, tablet or smartphone?

Heeley Trust run support sessions in the library every Friday morning. No need to book — just turn up. Bring your own laptop or tablet, or use the computers in the library.
