LIBRARY LINES for week beginning 22 March 2021

Easter and School holidays are coming up

Reminder that the Library will be closed for the Easter weekend but the after hours return chute will be available for those needing to return items.

School holidays also start with the Easter weekend. So far I have planned a couple of kids movies that will be held within the library, but bookings must be made prior to the sessions as there limited seats due to COVID-19 restrictions. Reminder that all children aged 10 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

Thank you from FOGL

Thank you to everyone who supported the street stall on Friday 19 March. It was great to see so many people out and about on Friday.

Easter Colouring-in competition for Adults only

Calling out to all the Adult colouring-in people. This Easter the library is holding a colouring-in competition. Entries are to be collected from the Library and returned by 4pm on Tuesday 6 April for judging. The prizes have been kindly sponsored by The Tin Cupboard. So, grab an entry or two and your colouring-in equipment and get colouring.

The next Saturday movie is a family movie on Saturday 10 April at 4pm

The movie will be The war with Grandpa starring Robert De Niro, Uma Thurman, Christopher Walken, Jane Seymour. This is rated PG. Synopsis: Peter and his grandpa used to be very close, but when Grandpa Jack moves in with the family, Peter is forced to give up his most prized possession: his bedroom. Peter will stop at nothing to get his room back, scheming with friends to devise a series of pranks to drive him out. However, grandpa doesn’t give up easily, and it turns into an all-out war between the two. Seats must be prebooked via the Library.
