We’ve just had confirmation of our “Awards for All” grant from the National Lottery Fund. This £8,000 grant will fund a feasibility and planning study to further develop the library building for community use. Our thanks to Margaret Davis and Ann Hindley for their work on this, and to all the National Lottery players who paid for it.
The Summer Reading Challenge closed on 30 Sept. Here are three proud youngsters with their certificates.
On Friday 16 June 2017 the library hosted a group of talented folk who presented an evening of traditional and contemporary folk music to a “capacity crowd”. We’re grateful to all those who performed, giving their time free of charge and raising £250 for the library — not to mention providing an enjoyable evening. There’s a short video of the evening here.
A group of library users, mostly first-time quilters, under the watchful eye of Lynne Brown, created a series of mini-quilts each representing a favourite book. You can see the results on our photo gallery page here, or you can come in to the library and see the originals. Lynne will be running more introductory quilting classes in the summer. If you would like to enroll, send her an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
