We now have the keys to our library!
Many thanks to all of the trustees and volunteers that have helped us to get to this stage and many thanks to South Tyneside Council for organising the installation of a brand new accessible toilet for the library.
The next two weeks are going to be tough as we redecorate the library, upgrade all of the computers and set up ready for the open day on Saturday 6th April. If you have some time and a paintbrush, come along and help us. We will also have some books that will need putting back onto shelves. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details if you can help.
The open day is fast approaching and we currently have many exciting things to show off the talents of our community and keep the children entertained over Easter. We have a carrot trail, a quiz and craft activities for the children as well as the most spectacular bunting consisting of over 400 pictures created by the pupils at Marsden Primary and Whitburn Primary that depict their favourite stories. As well as this, for the adults we have bestselling author Sheila Quigley coming to open the library and sign some of her books. There will be an exhibition of local talent including photos, artwork and poetry and live music. More information to follow…
