Events at Hethersett Library

Silver Surfers wanting to learn the basics of using a computer will be well catered for in a New Year course at Hethersett Library. 

The course is aimed at absolute beginners aged 60 and over and will cover writing and sending e-mail, shopping online, exploring the internet and booking holidays online 

The course will last for six sessions and begins on February 13th from 2 to 4 p.m and then continues on February 16th, February 20th, February 23rd, February 27th and March 1st (all from 2 to 4 p.m). 

“This will be a three week commitment and places are extremely limited and so booking is advisable,” said library manager Jennie Hoult. 

The library is also running an IT drop in clinic on Friday afternoons from 2.30 to 3.30 p.m to help people having problems sending e-mails, attachments, downloading e books or any other basic computer queries. 

“This  is a drop-in clinic for quick queries and customers will be seen on a first come, first served basis,” Mrs Hoult added. 

The very active library is also looking to start a new free book group on the first Monday of the month, starting on February 6th.

 

“This will be for people who love reading, drinking coffee and meeting others. We will be running from 2 until 3 p.m and it will give people the chance to share their thoughts on their latest books, magazines or anything else they have been reading and coffee will be supplied,” Mrs Hoult added. 

On February 15th the venue will be celebrating “one village, one library, one book and one day.” Hethersett Library is on a mission to see how many members of the local community they can encourage to read and share the same book at the same time. The book chosen is the bestseller One Day by David Nicholls. 

Hethersett Village Read will be launched on Wednesday, 15th February from 10 a.m to 1 p.m.  

“The idea is to pick up a copy any time from that day, talk about it with friends, down the pub, in the shop, at school, at work or anywhere else. We want the whole of Hethersett talking about One Day. It doesn’t matter if you’ve already read it or seen the film. The book is quite different to the film. We then want people to share their thoughts on our special One Day noticeboard in the library,” Jennie Hoult added.

 

Improvements have also been made to the library with the car park being re-surfaced:

 

Hethersett Library would like to say a very big thank you to Ian and Sue of Hethersett Social Club who kindly allowed both staff and readers the use of their car park whilst the one at the library was being resurfaced. Without their help it would have been more of an upheaval than it was,” Mrs Hoult said.
