History and coffee for library 


Highfield Library will celebrate its first anniversary with a series of events.

The library relocated from Marsh Lane to the Lower Orchards site, in Highfield Road, 12 months ago.

It shares the site with youth services, a children’s centre and three schools: Green Fold, Cherry Tree and St Germain Nursery.

To celebrate the first anniversary, young readers under the age of three will receive a free book bag on Monday, March 8 between 10.45am and noon.

Also on Monday, there will be a local history talk by historian Ken Beevers from 3.30pm to 5pm. The talk is free but it is advisable to book in advance with the library.

Celebrations will come to an end on Saturday, March 13 with an open coffee morning from 10am to noon for the local community.

The coffee morning will give residents the chance to check out what the library has to offer, from books and free internet access to the opportunity to meet new friends.
