Pett Community Library Notes – October 2020

We were extremely lucky that the first Wednesday in October was fine and dry, especially as it was sandwiched between two very wet days. Consequently, we were able to set up the library outside again, so making it easier to comply with health restrictions. And it was great to welcome back the Coffee Morning, waitress service included!!

The Jigsaw Library has quickly become very popular and there is more information elsewhere about jigsaws available and how you can access them.

Crochet Corner where you can learn to knit or crochet has not quite made it back yet, but we are always delighted to see what you are making.

Heather Godwin brought along wool and squares for her “Knit For Peace” project and Gillian Quick modelled (see below) the amazing dressing-gown she has made, which is what the squares are intended for.

As we are asked so often, it is worth mentioning once again that we do not sell books and cannot take your old books. This is a borrowing library, essentially set up to replace the mobile library, run by volunteers – us. The books are a County Library resource – a collection of about 7,000 books set aside for local Community Libraries and from which we regularly make a new selection. It doesn’t cost anything to borrow a book; we simply need your name and contact details and for you to sign a Data Protection form.

It was also good to welcome some new faces, which is marvellous encouragement for us to keep going. So do keep coming along and supporting the Village Coffee Morning, meeting up with friends old and new and supporting the Village Hall. Next Coffee Morning and Community Library: Wednesday 4th November, 10 – 12. Hope to see you there!!
