From Tuesday 28th April we have a 6 week shared reading course.  Enjoy the power of great stories and poems read aloud in a small friendly group.  Share responses over a cup of tea – these sessions are for people wanting to meet others, lift their mood and enjoy something new.  Sessions will run from 2.00 to 3.30pm. 

On Friday 1st May we have ‘Go Energy Shopping @ Your Library’ – learn how to use energy price comparison sites and save money!  You will need to bring along an energy bill and have an email address.  Two time slots available – 10.00 – 11.00 and 11.30 – 12.30.
