Sonning Common Library

News from the library for December to January 2019-20

Our gadget sessions on Thursday mornings from 10am (for those with queries/problems with lap-tops, Macs, androids and Smartphones) are proving increasingly popular – it’s a good idea to book a slot in advance, to make sure there’s a volunteer on hand to help with your particular query: phone (0118) 9722448.

For younger children (under 8s) we have storytimes every Saturday morning at 10am. Our next special storytime will be on December 14th, with a Christmas theme. There will be a craft session after the storytime, aimed at 3 – 8 year olds, and home-made cakes will be on sale. (Check the library in the New Year for details of our next ‘Saturday Special’)

We have rhymetimes for the under-3s on the first and third Mondays of the month at 10 – 10.30am, run with the help of able volunteers.

There is a Scrabble Club every Friday morning from 10am, and we have also started Craft Sessions for adults at the same time on Friday mornings, but only on the last Friday of the month – bring your own project to work on.

After 2 years of being open between Christmas and New Year, it has now been decided that it was a waste of money as so few people used Sonning Common Library then. So our Christmas opening hours are as follows: we close at 5pm on Monday 23rd December and open again on Thursday 2nd January. If you’re desperate for books/computers, Henley Library will be open between Christmas and New Year.
