- The next meeting for the Poetry Group is on Thursday 24 March 2:30 Theme: TRAINS.
- PLEASE NOTE THAT THE LIBRARY WILL BE CLOSED EASTER WEEKEND (Good Friday through Easter Monday)
- ANNOUNCEMENT: SUMMER HOURS have turned into Wednesdays!
Come see us on 6 April for our first Wednesday morning and have a cuppa and cake—and complete one of our volunteer forms so that we can keep our hours going.
Why are we doing this? In the survey we conducted in 2015 you told us you were not bothered by 6 pm closing but would welcome additional weekday hours. We’ll now close at 6 pm Tuesday and Friday year round, but open an additional weekday morning. So thank the survey monkey!
- PRINT/COPY PRICES RISE TO MATCH WARWICKSHIRE LIBRARY SERVICE CHARGES.
Our budget in 2015 felt the squeeze of ink prices, so we knew we must charge more to cover our costs. We’ve got a County Councillor’s grant to help with some of the costs, so we can hold our prices to the levels just announced for the Warwickshire Library Service. We have a pretty good printer, but its tolerance for cheap inks is nil.
Our charges: B/W A4, 10p A3, 20p COLOUR A4, £1 A3, £2
Lamination: A4, £1 A3, £2
To keep your costs down, consider colour printing only those pages of your document where colour is essential. Set the print options for your document to grayscale or Black to cut costs. Ask for help if you don’t know how to do this. Best help available from Dan, Ben and Luca—Tuesday afternoons 3:30-5 or Friday afternoon after 4:30.
We launched our Crafts in the Library series on 11 March with an open morning. Visitors who dodged the swirling snowflakes saw a full range of crafts books from throughout the Warwickshire Library Service and could borrow them at no charge. Coffee, tea, cake and biscuits took off any chill left after seeing the beautiful craft works on display with the artists who produced them. You can find out more details about the upcoming workshops on our Crafts in the Library page. To book, please download the Crafts in the Library Booking Form and return the completed form to the library along with your deposit.
We would like to thank the kind participation of our local artisans for contributing their time and efforts in support of the community library in Henley-in-Arden:
Here are some photographs of the open morning.
On Monday 11 March the Library will open its doors just to provide visitors with the chance to meet local craftspeople and see what you can do in a single workshop session.
Our workshops are meant to keep the fun in fund-raising, so we want to hear from you, and the artisans will be available to answer questions. Admission is free; coffee, tea and biscuits are 50p. Starting at 10:30am and finishing at 1pm.
See finished examples and explore what you would like to do. You can book places (for a small deposit) so that you don’t miss the chance to make something beautiful in good company. But we’ll keep booking forms at the desk in case you want to get a group together at a time when you can enjoy the workshop together. Among the possibilities are silk painting, paper box and card making, simple book binding, and paint-a-pot sessions. You can also sign yourself up for a yoga ‘taster’ session. And Henley Community Library members enjoy a ten per cent discount!
If there is a craft project you yourself would like to offer the community through a Library-organised workshop, we’d love to hear from you on 01564 792 941 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
