    Saturday 9 July is the 110th anniversary of the opening of our Carnegie Library. Sadly, it also marks 100 days since it was closed.

    To celebrate the library’s history of service to our community, the Friends are organising a special event. Plans include a picnic, music, readings, games and perhaps a few surprises.

    We will set up our table and gather at the top of Haredale Road (left side of library). There will be welcome refreshments at 3.00. Speeches will be given at 3.30, the exact time of the 1906
    event.

    Please try to bring a contribution of food or drink for the picnic.
