Hatfield Community Library

The volunteers at the library would like to thank our borrowers for your continued support and word of encouragement.

Author Event
Our next author event will be on Tuesday June 30th when Debbie Taylor will come in to talk about her book “Herring Girl,” which is an historical crime mystery set in the North East. I am reading it at the moment and find it very interesting. I know there are a lot of people from the NE in the Hatfield area so come along for a taste of “home.” She will be accompanied by the Poet John Wedgwood Clarke who will read some of his poems. He teaches at Hull University so is an honorary Yorkshireman. Both can be found on-line. Please book your tickets for this event.

POA Learning. The library is now a contact point for POA Learning. This is a series of courses which are free if completed. It is a paper rather than on-line course. For details call in at the library to see the display.

We have been pleased to welcome Hunger Hill feeder schools to the library for the Greenaway  Illustration  Award Scheme. Crookesbroom School also paid us a visit for story time. It was lovely to have the library full of well behaved children who were clearly enjoying themselves.

We are collecting DVDs to sell to raise money for the library. The DVD s must be original, in good condition and in the original box.  If you have any could you please drop them off at the library?

We also hope to hold a Summer fund raising event so look out for information about this. We need money for improvements and to pay for the adult and children’s activities.
You may have noticed how sparkly clean the windows are. We now have a window cleaner who comes fortnightly.
