NEEDLES, NOVELS AND NATTER in KENT
A brand new group meeting monthly in Coldharbour library was born from a member of the Library User Group bringing in an article about a Knitting Group. We advertised for names of those who enjoy knitting or crochet, or who would like to take up these hobbies, to come along and join others and have a chat about books at the same time.
- To widen awareness of library services
- To entice new members to join and to increase issues.
- To develop the library as a centre for the community
2 meetings have attracted 35 people, 4 new library members
The atmosphere is very lively. So if other libraries are trying to think of ideas for a new group to encourage people into the library, why not give this a try?
To continue supporting this popular group, to continue to improve the Library Service and to make the community aware of what we have on offer.
