Upcoming events at Preston Community Library

News from Preston Community Library Hub (Carlton Avenue East, Wembley, HA9 8PL - Preston Road Tube)

Our August quiz, written by Shelagh and Vanita, is in The Preston, 161 Preston Rd, at 7.30 this Monday, 15 August. The quiz will start promptly at 8. Next month's quiz will be on Monday 19 September.

This Saturday's film at 7.30pm is  a 1937 classic  We also have a children's  Disney matinee at 11am on Sunday 14 August .Next week's film, on Saturday 20 August, the last of this summer's programme, will be a Colombian drama (15).

This coming Monday, 15 August, Ozkan Gedik from the College of NW London's Talking Therapies Service will be talking in the library about treatments for problems such as depression and anxiety which are available to anyone registered with a Brent GP. The event is free, refreshments will be available, and people will be able to speak privately to Ozkan after the talk.

This week also sees our first Story Time sessions (see flyer above) for children aged 3-6 and 7-10. These sessions are from 3 - 4 pm in the library this Friday and Saturday, 12 / 13 August, and next Friday 19 August. The Summer Reading Challenge for children aged 4-10 continues in the library throughout this month, and it's not too late for children to join.

Our ESOL classes are taking a break until September, but Ray's IT classes for adults continue on Saturdays from 11-1. Booking is essential, so if you're interested please phone Ray Patel on 07799 953229. Our new Wednesday art class started  last week; if you want to join, either phone Trixi on 020 8904 4795, or just come to the library at 3pm on Wednesday. I'm also hoping that Samantha, whose classes were hugely popular last year, will be starting a new yoga class on Sunday mornings from September. If you're interested, please contact Samantha on 07801 697712.

Finally, The Silvertones, who were the highlight of our Christmas party, are playing another benefit for the library in The Windermere at 7.30 on Sunday 4 September. They were fantastic at Christmas, and we're very happy they've agreed to play for us again.

The library, of course, remains open on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. This means that we now have 22 shifts to fill every week - so if you want to help staff the library and keep it open, please get in touch. I hope to see lots of you in the weeks to come.
