Countdown: 7 weeks until Launch weekend 6th/7th April
STOP PRESS – it has just been confirmed by Coventry City Council that a qualified librarian will be leading Rhyme Time sessions from Monday Feb. 11th.
Please note that whilst you and your child are welcome to stay for a cup of coffee and a chat after the session, for Health and Safety reasons we would ask you to stay in the children’s library.

Saturday 23rd February. Discounted Book Sale
Opportunity to get crafty and turn a book into a different piece of artwork.
Free session led by two of our talented volunteers. Leave your masterpiece to decorate the library or take it home for £1.
Each Thursday (9am-11am) there will be our new Stay and Play session in the children’s library.
A very successful and enjoyable morning. Volunteers shared their experiences and thoughts about how volunteering in the library had made such a positive difference to their lives. At least 14 new volunteers have submitted forms and many more have expressed an interest.
Please remember you are welcome to come and find out about volunteering any time we are open
What a resounding success this turned out to be! Over 60 parents and children came and enjoyed building things together. Several requests for a repeat performance, so make a note of Monday 18th February (10-12am).
We welcomed Chris Arnot into the library on 3rd December when he talked about his new book ‘Larkin about in Coventry’. His talk was very well received and many went away with copies to give as Christmas presents.
You can find copies of the book in the Library’s bookshop.
Our first quiz night was a huge success! Lizzes Quizzes organised a Christmas themed quiz and everybody had a great time! We had plenty of delicious food, a raffle with eight prizes, prizes for the “head or tales” winners and of course, prizes for the winning team! Highlight of the evening: we got to “dress our Santa”!
We would like to thank Lizzes Quizzes for making the quiz night possible, the Royal Oak for offering the space and staff to help us, the Royal Bengal for the donation of the samosas and a meal voucher and Treflach farm for the donation of the sausage rolls and pies. And thank you all for coming! With your help, we managed to raise over £400 for the Library.
