The following craft activities will take place during May.

  • Sunday 6: It was Star Wars Day on Friday, May 4. Whynot pop along and make a 3D Darth Vader with light saber?
  • Sunday 13: It's the Royal Wedding on Saturday, May 19. Create your own crown to wear during the ceremony.
  • Sunday 20: Have you read Norman the Slug with a Silly Shell? Design a silly shell for your own slug collage.

Kesgrave Library Community Group AGM: Wednesday, May 9, 7pm If you are interested in joining the group or would like to be a friend to the library, why not pop along to our AGM and find out all about the group and what it has achieved in the last year? Everyone is welcome.

100 Club: Our community group's 100 Club is now starting its second year. For just £1 per month, you could enter and have a chance of winning a cash prize, plus knowing you are supporting your local library.

Don't have a Library Card? If you would like a library card, please call in and speak to a member of staff. You just need to bring in some form of ID which has your name and address on it. Children can also have a card from any age but need to be with their parent/guardian at the time of signing up.

IT Help Sessions: Are you having trouble getting to grips with a piece of technology? Or would you like help downloading e-books to your e-reader? A member of staff at the library still has spaces in their IT help sessions for May. Please phone up or speak to a member of staff about booking one of our half-hour slots.
