OCTOBER NEWSLETTER 2017
I don't seem to be able to copy the images that are in the newsletter. This time there were several teddy bears which explains the first sentence
Why teddy bears one wonders ! Because our Children’s Room has gained more fluffy toys, more books & some Beatrix Potter posters. It is a lovely space for small children & we hope to have more & more kids reading books both on the cushions and at home. If you have any children’s books to donate, do bring them along
ANTIGONE DES ASSOCIATIONS We had a stand & a lot of people came up to ask for information. We have had several sign ups since. The conversation sessions are a great attraction but we need to make clear that they are the icing on the cake thanks to volunteers & might be stopped any day for various reasons. People are joining the library, not signing up for conversation, otherwise they might be disappointed if the sessions stop.
CHRISTMAS PARTY We have decided to have a change this year ; our party will take place on Saturday 6th January to celebrate Twelfth Night at Lakanal so that we don’t have to turn anyone away for lack of space. More details nearer the time. Just a reminder for new members : you bring along savory or sweet finger food or something that is easy to manage & FOAL provides the drinks. This will be the first time we hold the party in our own home & I would like to thank the Claringbulls & the Grassets for hosting the party in the past
RAFFLE We shall soon be selling tickets for our FAMOUS RAFFLE, prizes, collected by board members, have started coming in (if you have anything you would like to donate send an e-mail to : firstname.lastname@example.org ) The tickets will cost 1 euro with 10 tickets for 8 euros. This is a good way to support the library & of course, you can sell tickets to your friends too. A list of prizes will be drawn up as they come in & will be regularly updated. The draw will take place at the party
QUIZ We can’t fix a date yet for our FAMOUS QUIZ, but it will be either the 2nd or the 9th February depending on availability of venue
NEW BOOKS They have arrived & will be on the shelves for the Wednesday 18th opening. Thank you to the dedicated team which does the covering. 40 new books this time, you have seen the list, another great selection, nearly all published in 2017 plus some back ordering
