Library to mark handover

Have your say

THURSTON Library is marking the libraries hand over with a morning of celebration and practical help.

On Wednesday, August 1, day-to-day running of Suffolk’s libraries is handed over to an industrial and provident society and to mark it Thurston’s library working group is inviting all users to see what the library can offer.

Users who would like to read a book on their laptop or iPad will be able find out how to download books free using e-book readers available in the library that morning. Those who would like join the library’s book club or to support the library by becoming a volunteer, being a member of the Friends of Thurston Library or joining the long-standing Library Working Group will be welcome.

Refreshments will be available all morning and there will be a special morning-long programme for children.

Richard Fawcett, chairman of the Library Working Group, said: “We are looking forward to helping the library develop services for users.”
