BOOK SHOP NEWS
The Friendly Bookshop
“The Friendly Bookshop” will also be officially opened on Sunday 19th September, immediately after the Friendly Bench opening.
Many thanks go to the residents of Burbage for the generous donation of thousands of books of all kinds, and bookcases that were badly needed. Books will be 50p minimum each but any larger donation will be much appreciated to help us to keep the Library open.
Carole Kemp of the Library said, “All of the books are now shelved and put in author order for everyone to find easily There are plenty to choose from; fiction, cookery, gardening, biographies and many more. Most authors seem to have a book in there of one sort or another so hopefully we will cater for all and of course, there are plenty of children’s books from birth to teenagers as well.”
The Grove Road Schools PTFA Scarecrow Festival is also on this day and we will be serving refreshments from 10 am onwards so we look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible.
