Goings On

in and around the community library.

Emotional Rescue

Saturday 22nd April will see another special evening of live performance at the library.

I’LL COME TO YOUR EMOTIONAL RESCUE is a presentation of contemporary theatre and live acoustic music starring Tom Figgins, Ruth Berkoff and Natalie Bellingham. There might also be some local talent strutting their stuff, plus a licensed bar.

Entry is FREE though voluntary donations of £7 per ticket would be welcomed. All proceeds in aid of library funds. Doors open at 7pm. There are limited places and demand is sure to be high so booking is essential.

Art by Cathrine Hall

The latest in our series of mini-exhibitions in the community library features work by local artist Cathrine Hall.

Cathrine – an amateur painter – regularly exhibits her work at the annual Easingwold & District Art Society (EDAS) exhibition at the Galtres Centre. She’s very talented, and her botanical watercolours are truly beautiful. Notable also are her portraits painted in the style of the Old Masters.

It’s well worth a special visit to the library to view Cathrine’s paintings, several of which are available to buy from should you desire a beautiful artwork for your home. The exhibition runs until April.

While you’re with us, join the library – it’s easy and free – and take a great read home with you too!

Knit & Natter

Our Knit & Natter group, run by our lovely volunteers, meets on the first and third Tuesday of each month from 10am until Noon.

Join us for a good chat and a cuppa. Catch up on your latest project or start a new one. All abilities are welcome and if you get yourself into knots our knitting and crocheting wizards will be sure to be able to untangle things for you.


Storytime for pre-schoolies – every Thursday from 10.15am to 11.00am during term time.

Pull on those well-travelled seven-league boots, shoulder your faithful old knapsack, put the magic beans back in your pocket and tuck a golden goose under your arm. Then bring your unsuspecting pre-schoolies along to the library to enjoy one of our lovely volunteers bringing a children’s tale or two to life.

Storytime is FREE and all are welcome. There’s no need to book – just come along.
