Our sessions have been fun - free or very affordable and most importantly FUN!  We will continue events both in Zoom and also adding outside events, which we trialled at Whitsun Half Term (2021) with a "Children's Hour", getting children back into the library, and also meeting our volunteers, staff and introducing "Bear the Trainee Library Dog"!

 

Watch out for our Summer Reading Challenge Events for 2021, including a TEDDY BEAR'S PICNIC!
