Gnosall Community Library
A lot has happened at the library since the last GMK edition. Although we opened our doors on the 20th February, we waited till everything settled before we had our ‘Official’ Opening. It occurred on a very wet 4th April, surely a good omen!
The deputy Mayor and Mayoress came for the cutting of the ribbon. We also had our local author, Nicholas Corden and SCC and GLEAN officials cutting ribbons. (We had three ribbons!)
All those who had volunteered time, money or labours were invited and the chairman personally named and thanked those that contributed an extraordinary amount.
We had our first AGM on the 14th May to acknowledge the last year’s achievements and all our volunteers were invited and came.
We always planned to be not just a library for books and we’ve already held our first Coffee Morning on the 21st May and plan to have more coffee mornings every 3rd Tuesday, so be sure to come and visit (you’ll get cake as well!).
We also have Bounce and Rhyme every 2nd/4th Tuesdays of each month AND we’ve had the first of a series of Genealogy Workshops; the next one on the 27th June.
You’d think we would have no time for handing out books, but our volunteers are industrious folk and we even have an IT Surgery on the 19th June, for those who are bewildered by some of the things their computers are doing (who isn’t!)
We are also getting ready for the Summer Reading Challenge for all the children who just love to read.
Anyway, why don’t you pop in and see us. You might find a book or audio book you like and, unlike bookstores, online or otherwise, they’re free!
