Community Library Notes -August 2020

Community Library Notes
We were very pleased to be able to reopen the Community Library in August, especially since it was a glorious day and we could set up outside. This made it much easier for us and everyone else to comply with the current health regulations. It all seemed to run very smoothly, books were returned and borrowed and many friends and acquaintances met for the first time in months, happily chatting at a distance in the sunshine.
The 500 Draw was also drawn, as evidenced by the picture herewith.
As yet, we are still unable to hold the coffee morning or meet up for crochet corner, but we have started a jigsaw lending library. Jane Sweaney has undertaken the, to me, daunting task of curating the jigsaws and will catalogue them and so produce a list available in the Village Magazine and online. She is hopeful that by presenting a jigsaw list from which to choose, many more people will be able to enjoy this activity. If you know of anyone who is unable to come to the coffee morning / library but might like to borrow a jigsaw, please contact Jane, who will be writing elsewhere in this magazine. An exciting new venture for us all.
We would like to thank Ann for looking after the books at home for the duration, rather than in the village hall.  This saves us a lot of work and extra cleaning.
We hope to be able to have next month’s library outside, too. It will be from 10 – 12 on Wednesday 2nd September and we look forward to seeing you.
Anna and Vivien
