Your local library is full of life and light, and not a speck of dust in sight, they are the hub of the local community for young and old alike.
With regular events for toddlers, teens and adults of all ages, they entertain and inform the whole community – and that’s apart from the special events that are held each month on different subjects. And everyone is welcome to everything.
There are computers to use with people to help you, cds to listen to, and groups to join. Learn how to craft, play board games and make new friends – or even, just maybe, borrow a book!
