100 Club

Our Community Group has a 100 Club, to help with fund-raising specifically for Kesgrave Library and we have nearly 70 people who have signed up. For just £1.00 per month, you could enter and have a chance of winning a cash prize plus knowing you are supporting your local library. Please speak to staff for details of how to enter.

Saturday 12th Marchthis is Suffolk Libraries Day.

We are currently beginning to sort out a range of activities to celebrate, including (Covid dependent) the author Kate Thompson visiting to talk about her new novel The Little Wartime Library; based on a real-life war-time library that was situated in the underground at Bethnal Green.

This event is due to be held at Felixstowe Library, due to Kesgrave’s lack of space. Watch out for more information on this.

Cancer Support Group

We are hoping to restart this one Monday morning a month in the library during March. Please keep an eye out for posters advertising this.

Our volunteer who helps run these sessions, is available to offer assistance on any aspect that may be worrying you, whether you are currently suffering from cancer or a carer in need of advice.
