Friends of Milborne Port Library (FOMPL) – SEPTEMBER 2019

hullabaloo blueFirst we’d like to apologise to any disappointed library members about the absence of the mobile library which Libraries Southwest had hoped would make visits during August. However by the time you read this the Jolly Book Bus should be installed in the East Street carpark, as a permanent feature. Opening times are as follows:

  • Tuesday 9 am – 1 pm, 2pm – 4.30 pm
  • Friday 9 am – 1 pm
  • Saturday 9 am – 1 pm        

Space chaseThe Summer Reading Challenge is proving very popular, as usual. Sue and Edwina, with help from Tony, have been running a pop-up library in the Village Hall. On the first day they registered thirty one new Library members. Luckily there were four staff on hand as twenty seven children signed up for the Reading Challenge. Thirty two children joined the second session plus fifteen accompanying adults.

This means that we have enough children taking part in the Challenge to make our Space Race party viable. It will take place on Saturday 14 September in the School Hall, from 2.30 pm. This year the Summer Reading Challenge celebrates its twentieth anniversary, so come along and join in the Space-themed fun and games.
