New & News!

We have had several deliveries of new stock during lockdown and have just chosen new titles – these choices inspired by their having been nominated for various fiction awards, or otherwise featured on radio and TV book programmes.

Our popular coffee mornings are scheduled to restart on the first Saturday of each Month. The first one will be on Saturday 3rd of July from 10-12. Do come along and join us. There will be our usual book and jigsaw sale as well as home-made cakes.

On Tuesday 6th July our AGM will take place in the primary school hall at 7 for 7.30. Do come along and have your say!

We hope to run two new small groups for children, on Saturday mornings from July 1st. One group will be playing board-type games, and the other will be story time. All children are welcome, but if they are under 8 they must be accompanied by an adult. Space is limited, so booking is essential. Our self-serve Café will be open by then, so the adults can have a coffee, or browse for a book for themselves.

Barton Arts – a local group of skilled crafters, formed during lockdown – are running a series of bookable workshops every month. Look for details on Facebook, Instagram and in Barton Today, and The Tower, or ring Julie Williams on 01604 812 342.

This year’s Summer Reading Challenge will launch on 10th July and we will be welcoming all children aged 12 or under to come into the library to register. The theme is ‘Wild World Heroes’ – sign up and help to save the natural world
