Code Club for children aged 9 to 12 is on Mondays (3:45pm – 5pm). We have a ‘techie’ expert, William Evans, who is giving up his time to help us offer this activity. William works in IT and knows practically everything there is to know about coding. It’s FREE to attend. Come along and learn how to write code to create simple games, animations and more. Contact us at the library to book your place.
…and for adults:
Friendship Fridays takes place every Friday morning 10.30am – 12noon. It’s an informal get together with tea, coffee, cake, board games and other activities. This event is led / facilitated by our parish nurse, Ali Cherry. Everyoe is welcome – no need to book, just come along.
Home Library Service – we have spaces for new customers
Do you find it difficult to visit the library because you have problems getting out and about? If you, or someone you know, cannot visit your local library due to health or mobility issues, volunteers from Suffolk Libraries Home Library Service can bring the service to you! The service is free and is available from Aldeburgh Library. Volunteers will visit you regularly in your own home with a selection of books or spoken word CDs for you to choose from. You can also request titles or subjects from them. If you or someone you know would like to receive this service, please contact us on 452502.
We have ordered our first selection of ‘Memory Boxes’ for loan to library customers. They may even have arrived by the time you read this! We have guidance notes which explain how to use the boxes, courtesy of Norfolk County Council. We will be working on increasing our range of ‘Titles’ and to this end, we would appreciate donations of small items of old memorabilia. Please think of our Memory Boxes before you put it in the bin!
