Friends of Milborne Port Library (FOMPL) NOVEMBER 2018

hullabaloo blueMembers of the Library Reading Group are sorry to say goodbye to Paula Nussey and Bill Deakin, who have moved out of the area. Paula and Bill were Founder members of the Reading Group some 17 years ago and have always made a very lively and thought provoking contribution to the discussions.  They were also very active in the Hullaballoo Campaign against the proposed closure of the Library in 2011.

Paula in particular made some inspirational suggestions about how we could demonstrate our opposition to the plan, and those were the very things that attracted the Media to give us such good coverage.  Paula and Bill will be missed in the Reading Group and in the centre of village life.  We wish them happiness in their new territory.

The Reading Group, of course, goes on successfully, meeting at 5.30 pm on the last Tuesday of every month to discuss books chosen in turn by Group members.  If you would be interested in joining the Group, have a word with the Library staff who will tell you more.

Story Time continues to attract a group of mothers with their young children – thank you to the team of volunteers who take turns to read and also to Roz Barrett for organising the rota. On Friday 23 November the annual Milborne Port Christmas Lights Switch-On takes place. Sue Spencer has kindly agreed to include an additional Story Time before the actual Switch-On – exact timing will be posted in the library nearer the time.

The library has taken on a student on Work Experience which is a help for Sue and Edwina and also provides an interesting insight into the day to day running of our library for the student herself.

Discussions regarding the future of our Library continue and we hope to have more information in due course.
