News for September

Summer Reading Challenge – this year’s challenge, based on record breakers, saw us break our own record for the number of children who joined the challenge! Many thanks to Marian Winckles for the fabulous games, quizzes and workshops. The Corinium Museum visit was a great success. Certificates and medals are available for every child who completed their three visits to the library in the holidays so come in and collect yours if you don’t already have it.

 

AGM – the library AGM was held on 16th September. In addition to brief reports on the library and its finances a short talk by Sandra Dennis was given on her first novel Shades of Time which was published this Autumn.
