Downton Library news

Staff and volunteers at Downton Library have several regular events in the calendar.  There is a monthly Crime and Thriller group on Mondays (12:45 - 1:45 pm) and Craft Time is on select Fridays (10:45am - 12pm). Both are friendly groups and are open to new members. To find out more and the next meeting dates, drop in to the library.  There is also a Happy to Chat group every Thursday morning from 10am - 1pm.

For younger members,  Rhyme Time, for babies toddlers and children under 5, takes place every other Friday, 9:30 - 10am.  Booking is encouraged, but drop-ins are welcome.  Lego club for children 6 - 12 years, on selected Mondays, is always very popular (booking needed) and the Summer Reading Challenge (for 4 - 11 year olds) is back in July with a new theme “Marvellous Makers”. Last year 110 children took part. Can you help them to  reach a new record?
