Coffee Morning - Libraries Week

What better way to celebrate Libraries Week than with coffee and cake?! Our staff will be lovingly baking some delicious goodies, served alongside fresh teas and coffees provided by The Owl and The Pussycat Cafe. You'll find our stall in the main lobby of the library. Libraries Week runs from 8th - 13th October, and we'd like to celebrate all the great things that libraries do. We'll be fundraising for our library service which is a registered charity, as well as raising awareness, so donations will be gratefully received! We're looking forward to it!
