Library Familiarisation Session

All branches will be having 'Library familiarisation sessions' on  Saturday's at 10.00am. This a short tour (10-15 mins) where staff will walk through the library, pointing out the different collections and providing information about the services we provide. It is also an opportunity to ask questions and will probably have something new even for long-time members. These will be held at the same time every Saturday in each branch and so no bookings are required.
