What’s Happening in May


National Walking Month – We receive brochures from several local walking groups; why not call in and choose a suitable walk for you and your family this month?

Local and Community History Month – Increase your awareness of local history by borrowing one of our many local and community history books.

6th May – International Dawn Chorus Day – The story goes that International Dawn Chorus Day began in the 1980s when broadcaster Chris Baines asked everyone to attend his birthday party at 4am so they could enjoy the dawn chorus with him. If you intend to have your own dawn party, the library on-line catalogue has a large collection of books and CDs to help you recognise birds and their calls.
