Friends of Milborne Port Library (FOMPL 2020) - February 2020

hullabaloo blueWe are pleased to tell you that Story Time has been reinstated. It will take place in the Jolly Book Bus on Saturdays from 10 – 10.30 so please let people who might be interested know. The first session will be on Saturday 1 February. The library are selling DVDs for £1 each – there is a good selection of recent titles to choose from. You can also borrow a wider selection from the Jolly Book Bus on a fortnightly basis.

The heating problems in the Bus have now been resolved with a background convector heater on low when the bus is closed. This helps prevent the books from becoming damp. For those who have enjoyed using the Quiver app there are lots of new colouring sheets now available. The book group continues to thrive in the Town Hall and always welcomes new members.

We are very lucky to have Michael Partington, classical guitarist, giving a recital in St Johns Church, Milborne Port on 28 March 2020 at 7.30. It is a privilege to have such a renowned musician visiting us again. Tickets will be available from Wayne the Butcher’s and the proceeds will be shared between Church funds and Milborne Port Library.

Your Library Friends Group had a chance recently to meet with the 13 other Library Friends Groups to exchange ideas and issues on running a Library. We are the only Library in a vehicle so didn't gain a lot from the meeting, but as we are looking ahead to being back in a building, it was a good idea to hear of the issues from other libraries in buildings. There was also some interesting information on the use of social media in publicising library events. Also we will shortly meet with the Parish Council to discuss the Community Hub.

Perhaps 2020 should be the year when we extend our use of Facebook in order to reach a wider audience.


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