A small group of volunteers has been working to get a Friends Group for the new Bishopston library off the ground.  

The Friends of Bishopston Library (FOBL) will be a volunteer-run group, independent of the Libraries Service but working with them to create events at the library and support community use of the building.

In conjunction with the Libraries Service, the FOBL group is pleased to announce a launch event on Friday 13 October, between 7pm and 9pm, when award-winning garden and food writer, Lia Leendertz, will be talking about her new book: The Almanac: A Seasonal Guide to 2018.

Lia is an author and journalist: she writes for the Guardian, a weekly column for the Telegraph, a monthly column for The Garden magazine and a long-running series on growing and eating seasonally for Simple Things magazine.

Kevin Molloy from FOBL said: "We hope that this will be the start of a programme of events and are keen to hear from people who have ideas, contacts or resources that they are willing to share. Visit the FOBL facebook page and let us know www.facebook.com/bishopstonlibrary 

The event is free of charge but FOBL is hoping to arrange some limited refreshments to raise some funds to get us off the ground. Tickets are available online (see link below) or a place can be booked at any library.
