Click and Collect – We have had a successful launch. If you wish to order a book and don’t know how to order, call us between 10 am and 12 noon on Tuesdays or Thursdays and we will do our best to help you. When your book has arrived, we will call you to make an appointment to collect the book. The return of books can be anytime between 10 am and 12 noon on Thursdays without an appointment. There will be a box in the foyer for you to drop your books into.

Storytime on Facebook – This has been very successful with stories and songs being put on our Facebook page. We have had over 250 views and likes from as far away as Australia, New Zealand and Singapore with very favourable comments. Stories are in both Welsh and English. Any contributions would be most welcome in either audio or video.

Clwb Clonc – This Welsh conversation group is still going strong on Zoom. If you wish to join and keep up your Welsh language skills, then sign in on Mondays at 11.00am. The log in details is the same each week: meeting ID: 760-4305-6456; password: 5dgewT.

New Books – For those of you who like Crime/Thrillers, we have received Peter May’s new book, ‘A Silent Death’. We have also received some Family Books: Lego – Build a Town and Star Wars

– Use the Force. Both books have projects to work on, how about sharing your Lego constructions with us, email us a photo and we can display them in the Library ready for the day we open again.

The Library is looking for people who are willing to share their expertise with social media – recording e.g. uploading onto Facebook, digital software, etc. If you think you can help please email or phone us for a chat.

 

Sylvia’s Book of the Month

‘The Dutch House’ by Ann Patchett

Told in Ann Patchett’s inimitable blend of wit and heartbreak, ‘The Dutch House’ is a story of family, love, responsibility and sacrifice, of the powerful bonds of place and time that magnetise and repel us for our whole lives and the lives of those who survive us.

An absorbing read; I loved this book. The characters are well drawn, and it is beautifully written. The Dutch House of the title is fascinating, and it draws you in to thinking you would like to live there!

I thoroughly recommend it.

Your contributions – We would love to receive a review or synopsis of a book you are reading. Please email your contributions to wenvoelibrary@outlook.com.
