First of all, a very big thank you to all of you who have enabled us to get this far with the venture of the Library being open again 3 days a week. This is now mainly under the supervision of volunteers.
If you don’t follow us on twitter then you won’t know that 316 people passed through the doors yesterday. We literally had to throw people out last night, so we will soon have to consider extending our late night on a Thursday! Poets Corner is a success and our local poets in residency will soon be taking their wares into Deptford Green School for taster sessions and then continuing workshops in the Library on Thursday 4:30-5:30. Evidence of their work will be heard at the Tea Party on Saturday when two of the poetry competition competitors recite their work.
Saturday 17th is a very busy day this week. The usual will be on offer plus…
- 11:45 under 7s storytelling from favourite children’s books along with creative activities.
- 2:00 Knitting Club for all abilities
- 3:00 Creative Workshop for 8-15year olds (a few places still available) led by local artist John Paul Flintoff
- 5:00 Tea Party with lots of lovely cakes and cups of teas (with saucers)Raffles, Poetry reading, Rap and a trio of local lads who met at primary school
The Tea Party is a fundraising event, equally it is a way of thanking everyone for their support. We need money for the rent and running costs to keep the library open by volunteers, so any donation will be well spent, what is important is that you come. We need to use it, we don’t want to lose it again.
Look forward to seeing so many of you tomorrow,
Volunteer and chair of New Cross People’s Library
