Friends of Milborne Port Library (FOMPL) - December 2019

Jill Spring (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) writes. By the time the magazine reaches readers the Christmas Tree Switch-On will have happened, including Story Time in the Church and the Christmas Tree Festival. We are decorating our tree with mini ‘books’ depicting a favourite book, author or book character. The little cards have been available to visitors to the Jolly Book Bus.

This month the number of visitors to the Bus has steadily increased and borrowers are enjoying the new selection of books available. Various teething problems are gradually being ironed out thanks to help from the Friends. Also a very big thank you to Sue and Edwina who remain cheerful and positive in somewhat challenging conditions. As the weather gets colder they are needing to keep the door shut. However, don’t let that put you off, just bang on the door or window and they will open it for you.

‘Augmented Reality Colouring’ is an intriguing app which is now available on the Library iPad. The idea is to download and print off a colouring page from the selection in the app. You then colour in the picture and hold the iPad over the page. Your picture will come to life and move around with accompanying sound effects. Very high-tech and great fun! Do bring your children or grandchildren along to the bus to find out more and to have a go.

Wishing all readers a Happy Christmas and New Year.

Tuesday        9 – 1, 2.00 – 4.30
Friday            9 – 1
Saturday       9 - 1 

NB The Jolly Book Bus will close at 1 pm on Christmas Eve
