This week I am introducing to you the Chargebar. This is a free charging station that allows you to charge any phone or tablet while you visit the library. Please note that it is your responsibility to keep an eye on your hardware while it is charging and not the Librarians.
The school holidays are here, and we are showing a couple of movies. On Thursday 18 April at 1.45pm for a 2pm start we are showing Fantastic Beasts: The crimes of Grindelwald and on Friday 26 April at 1.45pm for a 2pm start we are showing Mary Poppins Returns. To ensure a seat please book via the Library for both sessions. These are free and FOGL will be hosting the candy bar.
If you know of anyone aged 65 and over who would like to learn how to use a computer, online banking, online shopping, sharing photos, etc please let them know that we are running free classes. Bookings are required but they are free.
