Preston Community Library now operating temporarily from library site after 3 year closure

From the Preston Library Campaign

Last week Preston Community Library signed a licence to use the Preston Library building until the end of July, so after a gap of nearly four years there is again a public library in Carlton Avenue East. There are already books available to borrow. The creative writing and Scrabble groups which we've been running for some time will continue, and there will be an immediate expansion of our English classes. Other activities planned for the very near future include a film club and yoga and knitting classes.

For the moment we're opening from 12.30 - 7 on Mondays and from 11-5 on Saturdays. We hope to expand the opening hours very soon; to do that we need more volunteers to staff the building, so if you can spare some time please do get in touch. or.

We have a couple of events coming up very soon. This Thursday, 23 April is World Book Night 2015, and we will be giving away books in the library from 4 until 7; there will also be readings from Shakespeare, whose birthday it is. There are more details on the attached poster.

And on Monday week, 27 April, we have our next pub quiz at 7.30 in The Preston pub. We aim to start the quiz promptly at 8. This year's quizzes have been as enjoyable as ever and very well attended. Now that we're back in the library we need your support more than ever, so I hope to see as many of you as possible at both of these events.

Thanks for your continuing support.
