Library events 2018

Summer Reading Challenge 2018

We are delighted to introduce you to Mischief Makers, Summer Reading Challenge 2018. Celebrating the 80th anniversary of the much-loved comic Beano.

Children taking part this year will follow clues to explore their colourful collector’s map of Beantown: meeting Dennis, Gnasher and friends along the way. As children read the library books, they will collect special stickers to help them find the mysterious buried treasure. There will be pranks galore and a ton of fun at your local library this summer.


Micro Bits

The BBC Micro:bit is here. If children would like to learn how to program a computer come in and learn how to use Micro:bit. We will give you some ideas how to get started and you can loan a Micro:bit for 3 weeks the same way as you loan a book. Children need to be a Library member. If you aren’t a member already join on line or at the Library. You will need an Adult as a guarantor.

You can use your BBC Micro:bit for all sorts of cool creations, from robots to musical instruments – the possibilities are endless.


We will be holding our usual Summer Social Evening which this year will be on Tuesday 19th June at 7.30 pm. We are fortunate to have Hal Moggridge, a famous and local landscape architect, to talk on his recent book ‘Slow Growth – on the art of landscape architecture’ at a meeting on Tuesday 19 June in the library at 7.30.  Hal kindly donated this book to the library and it is in great demand. If you wish to own your own copy then Hal will have some for sale on the evening.

This wide-ranging book includes many areas of landscape architecture from the restoration of eighteenth-century designed landscapes including Capability Brown and the landscaping of parks and lakes in the twentieth century.  This is an event not to miss.

Please bring friends who may be interested in joining the library as Friends or Volunteers as this subject is likely to be of interest to many.
