New & News!

January Diary

  • Film Clubs – We have two great new films for you in January – see below, and also your Barton Today and Social Media for details – or at least clues – to the titles.

  • Friday 27th  – The Friday Film Club will be showing a gloriously uplifting film, only recently shown in cinemas, starring the wonderful Lesley Manville, and Isabelle Huppert (and a Dior dress). If you saw it at the cinema, you will probably want to see it again, but if not now’s your chance to catch up!
  • Monday 30th – Our ‘non-mainstream’ film this month has been described as “like ‘Brief Encounter’ remade by Kubrick and Scorsese“, and is a Cantonese film (with English sub-titles) released in 2000, directed by Wong Kar-Wai, and which is amongst the BFI’s (British Film Institute) top-ten films of all time.
  • Book Recommendations – Books read & recommended by our volunteers are proving very popular, if the rate at which these titles ‘fly off the shelf’ is anything to go by.  If you are wondering what to read next come and have a look at this display, and if after reading the book you disagree with the Volunteer’s view, feel free to write you own review in rebuttal.

The Library Book Group meets on the 2nd Tuesday in the month, every month.
New members always welcome.
