From Preston Community Library Campaign
Firstly, a reminder that July's pub quiz is tomorrow night (Monday, 6 July) at 7.30 in The Preston. As usual, we aim to start the quiz promptly at 8. I hope to see lots of you there. Next month's quiz will be on Monday 10 August.
Our new film club opens its doors for the first time on Monday 13 July with a screening of To Kill a Mockingbird at 6.30, preceded by a performance at 4.30 of the novel's trial scene with pupils from local schools. This event is timed to coincide with the publication of Harper Lee's new novel. Please note that only members of the library can be admitted to this film; you can join the library at the door.
Our next show will be Brent History on Celluloid, at 2pm on Thursday 23 July. Film London's archivist Louise Pankhurst will be presenting a selection of films from the Brent Museum and Archives, offering a glimpse of the borough's rich celluloid history.
The library will continue to open on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays throughout July. Our current classes and other activities will continue, and this month we are adding IT classes for adults and Story and Rhyme for children. The Story and Rhyme sessions will be from 11 to 12 on Saturdays for children from 5 to 8 years old, who must be accompanied by an adult. IT for adults will be on Wednesdays at 3 and at 7. Places on these IT classes are limited and booking is essential. Please phone Ray Patel on 07952 425902. Details of all of this are, as ever, on our website; https://brentlibraries.wordpress.com/ .
Our current licence in the Library building expires on July 31, and the future remains uncertain. It now looks very likely that a school will be using the building, possibly for a fairly short period, from September. When that happens, our use of the building will be limited to weekends. I will write to you about this when I know more. In the meantime, if you have any views on the future of the library, please let us know.
