News From Capel Library

We caught up with the Capel Library ahead of their Summer reading challenge.

June brings exciting changes in the library. Subject to no unexpected changes in government guidelines from June 21, will be relaxing restrictions on our services. Our groups and activities will return with Tot Rock on Thursdays and the Friends Film Night to mention but a few. Please keep an eye on our website, Facebook page and Instagram for full details as well as in the library.

Don’t forget to register for the Summer Reading Challenge on July 17. Children will need to read one library book per week for six weeks. They will need to come to the library weekly to tell our wonderful volunteers all about the book they have read.

Summer Reading Challenge volunteers are a huge benefit to the scheme. If you would like to volunteer, please pop into the library to see a member of staff or email us at:

Home Library Service is now back up and running. Do you know anyone who would benefit from having books delivered to them? We have volunteers ready and waiting to help. Get in touch with us at Capel and we can arrange a Covid-friendly service to the door. See the website for details:

The Friends of Capel library

Community Cinema will start again on June 22 and tickets will go on sale at the beginning of June. At the time of writing, The Military Wives and 1917 are neck and neck in the voting. If you had a ticket for Judy, which was cancelled at the beginning of 2020, you can use it against a film of your choice.

If you would like to get involved with The Friends of Capel Library, please pop into the library and ask for Katharine.
