Events at Bishopston Library

April 29 2018

This has been a tough year for libraries in Bristol, their staff, and all who use and value them, Friends of Bishopston Library told the Voice.

"In Bishopston, we are extremely fortunate to have a fantastic, purpose-built library at the heart of the Gloucester Road community. While we wait with some anxiety the outcome of the final phase of the consultation, we also want to celebrate the library’s first birthday on Thursday May 3. So we would like to invite everyone to come along and join us for tea and cakes.

"We will be running some activities for children, and holding an exhibition on the various activities of the library and the Friends over the last twelve months. There will be cakes from 11am – 12.30pm (if you can be there just before 11.00, we will sing  ‘Happy Birthday’ as the library opens) and again from 2.15 – 3.30pm. "                              

The library's programme of Climate and Energy Talks by researcher/writer Nikki Jones continues every Thursday throughout May. Whether or not you made the first talk on April 26, please do come along to any or all of the others. Doors open at 7pm, and there will be hot drinks available.
