LIBRARY UPDATE
I have just catalogued more DVD’s that have been donated, they are on the carousel nearest to the outside door. Some old, some new!
There will be a delay for some on “The Sun Sister”, it is very popular & we already have 9 reservations. There are plenty of other great books - I find I often alternate between something light & something more ‘meaty.’ Other times I fixate on an author. ( I have just finished the Jeffrey Archer series The Clifton Chronicles).
I have also read Jojo Moyes latest book “The Giver of Stars” Took me a while to get into it but it is quite a delight. Mind you it is about books & librarians!
‘YOU ARE NEVER ALONE IF YOU HAVE A GOOD BOOK’
Hi All There was a large number this week, may be because of the computer glitch a couple of weeks back. Please check carefully. Thanks.
