Regular Events

- 2020_Regular Events Now Online

During our temporary closure we want to help you continue to play and learn, and we are thrilled to be able to deliver some of our well-loved regular events in new online formats.

Our librarians have been busy recording & organising Rhyme Time, Stay-at-home Storytime & Conversation Café sessions from their homes, so that you can access these from the comfort and safety of yours. Make sure you also check out our Special Events now running online!  

While not all of our Regular Events may be deliverable in an online format, we look forward to welcoming these programs and activities back in our libraries when it is safe to do so.

We miss seeing our community members and hope you are staying safe and well.

- Book chat

Monthly Book Chat

Reading doesn't have to be a solitary passion! 

Join us online for our monthly book chat. It's a chance to connect with other people through friendly conversation and a mutual love of words. We'd love to hear what you've been reading – whether it's a book, a poem, a journal article, even an audiobook or podcast. Make yourself a cuppa and settle in for some book talk. Maybe you’ll discover your next must-read book!

Book your place
 and we'll send you a Zoom invitation.

- Makers Corner

Makers' Corner

Make yourself a cuppa and join us online for a chat about what you've been making. We'd love to see your latest craft project, hear what you've been up to in the garden or discover what you've been baking in the kitchen. 

Makers' Corner is a relaxed and friendly event, guided by a library staff member. We invite people of all ages, abilities and levels of craft, gardening or cooking skill to come along.

Book your place and we'll send you a Zoom invitation.
