Summer Reading Stars: We’re entering the last few weeks of the children’s reading challenge! If anyone wants to sign up for the last few weeks feel free to call in. Our prize giving celebration will hopefully take place before school starts back.

Bonnet-Making Workshop: Many thanks to all who took part in the bonnet-making workshop on the 18th of July – especially to those who supplied the cakes and sandwiches. Much fun was had by all in our commemoration of Jane Austen’s death 200 years ago. There are plans to have a few more similar events over the next few months, so if anyone has any interest please get in touch.

Library Sign: Some of you might have noticed that the library sign has been updated with the library’s current opening times; however there is still one mistake that has to be rectified. The times are still as follows: Tuesdays: 1.20pm to 5.30pm and 6pm to 7.30pm; Wednesdays: 10am to 1.30pm and 2pm to 5.30pm; Saturdays 11am to 1pm.
