Knit and Natter AND Coffee ‘n’ Cake!

Come to the library on Friday afternoons for a (very) informal get together to drink coffee, eat cake, natter and – if you’d like to – do a bit of knitting. We were wondering if we could get an informal group going where people could make their own projects, or knit things for charity, or learn to knit, or just get out of the house for an hour to meet people and have a chat! Whatever you’d like to do, we’d love to see you! Sessions will run every Friday afternoon from 1.30 till 4.30 – just drop in when suits and stay for as long as you like. Starts next week.

Board Game Family Fun at the Library!

We’re trying something new! Bring the kids along on Monday 26th March (first day of the Easter hols) for some board game fun. Ages (approx.) 3 – 10. There will be Jaffa Cakes and juice!! Board games are great for developing soft skills like turn-taking as well as reading and thinking skills – and they’re FUN!! 1.30 till 4.30 – drop in for a while if you can.

Thank you to everyone who joined us on Saturday for our book Bring and Buy sale. It was a great success with more than 60 visitors and MILLIONS of books brought which we will sell to raise money for the ‘Library Loo’ fund. We made £65 on the day too – so thanks for supporting your library and making the library buzz and fizz with life!!

Book Bring and Buy Sale – date for your diary!

Have you been meaning to have a book clear out (and to get some exciting new titles?) then put this date in your diaries! Saturday 11 November, 10-30 till 12.30 – there’s a ‘Book Bring and Buy Sale’ in the library (Vicarage Lane, Gresford, LL12 8UW – just a minute’s walk from The Plough). Get rid of the old books you’ve already read and grab some different ones. Tea/coffee/juice/biscuits and a warm welcome will all be waiting for you!
