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

Jill Spring writes: The Reading Group, after enjoying their new venue for a few months since we had to leave Cross Cottage, courtesy of the WI, were then faced with the closure of the Town Hall premises due to the Lockdown. Not to be defeated by this, they set up a ZOOM Online Group to discuss their book – appropriately titled, perhaps, ‘The Light in the Dark. A Winter Diary’ by Horatio Clare. Seven of the 11 Group members opted to join the discussion via ZOOM and report that a good discussion was possible, plus a real feeling of Being Together.

Library as wwwCopies of the next book had already been received from the Library Service before we had to shut down the Jolly Book Bus.  Library Staff member, Edwina Stirzaker, supported by husband John, valiantly delivered the next book (at 2 metres distance!) to Group members’ homes, and thanks are due to them for their efforts. Now the Group plan another ZOOM meeting to discuss the new book at the end of April.  And, if Lockdown continues beyond that date, the Group may well use a tried and tested formula of recommending favourite books to each other – via ZOOM of course -  for as long as Lockdown continues.

Our Virtual Story Time continues to make a weekly appearance on Facebook – check out the page called ‘Milborne Port News and Everything’ on Saturdays and follow the link to the You Tube page.

A lot of us are enjoying jigsaw puzzles while confined at home. If anyone would like to borrow one Roz Barrett has the Library stock in her garage. Call or message her on 07968 257678 to arrange collection or local delivery’

And that’s about it for this month. Keep reading and stay safe.
