Encouraged by the success of the events in October (Lia Leendertz: The Almanac)  and November (Librarian Theatre: Alice in the Cuckoo’s Nest), the Friends have  continued to meet regularly to plan future activities. The Friends is a volunteer ­run  group independent of the Libraries Service but working with them to create events and support community use of the library.

Current plans include local author and poet Lucy English who will entertain us on  Friday 2nd February together with some regular activities such as coffee mornings and a programme of short talks on topical issues. The Friends also hope to put together activities or events that will appeal to young adults; we would welcome your ideas on this.

The Friends are also considering setting up a repair café similar to the one that  operates every month at Easton library. The concept is to encourage people to embrace sustainable consumerism (and save money at the same time) by using the skills available in the café to get items repaired instead of throwing them away. Please let us know if you have skills (electronics engineering, sewing, etc) that you would be willing to put to use for the community.
