Covid -19 Self-Test (Rapid Antigen Tests) – Did you know that your local library is a collection point for these tests. Please just pop along and ask staff for however many boxes you or your family require.

Word Play Sessions – These sessions returned at the Kesgrave Community Centre and are continuing all through the holidays on a Wednesday, with Tot Rock at 9.45 – 10.15 a.m. and Baby Bounce at 10.45 – 11.15a.m. Due to the Covid restrictions, we have reduced capacity until guidelines change. To attend, you will need to ring the library to book or message us on Facebook.

Story Time – Staff were so pleased to see returning faces to these sessions. We have missed you all. Story Time will continue every Friday all through the holidays, outside in the library garden 9.45 – 10.15 a.m. weather permitting. Numbers are limited, so please ring to book your place 01473 626103 or message us on Facebook.

Summer Reading ChallengeWild Heroes – All you need is your own library card to sign up for the challenge. Then read six library books, one of which is a non-fiction and then come back and speak to our volunteers about your books. Each time you read a book you will receive a prize to keep you going to the end of the challenge.

Sessions this year are:

  • Monday - 9.30 – 11.30 a.m.
  • Tuesday - 2.30 – 4.30 p.m.

Sadly, due to the current situation we are unable to offer the crafts which we normally provide but we are putting together craft bags to be distributed towards the end of the challenge.

We will also be holding a couple of competitions – so watch out for these. We are looking forward to seeing your entries.

Once again, the staff would like to thank you for all your continued support.
