Changes start at Mirfield Library

Issue 727

THE writing may not be literally on the wall – but changes are under way at Mirfield Library.

Book-drop boxes are being installed, self-checkout of items is starting and updated computers and wi-fi are installed.

Jenny Tomlinson Walsh, chairman of the Friends of Mirfield Library, asked for patience.

She said: “There will be some disruption and sometimes change can be rather difficult to come to terms with. But the library is now on the brink of developing into a valuable asset as a cultural, social and educational hub.”

A calligraphy group is starting up with beginners through to seasoned calligraphers welcome on Wednesday, March 9 (1pm to 4pm). To book, or for more information, call Jenny on 07977 627128.

The library is also the venue for a knitting group raising cash for charity.

The Knit ’N’ Natter club, above, meets on Mondays at 4pm, knitting goods including tops, hats and rabbits and hedgehogs for children in Uganda.

‘Twiddlemuffs’ for dementia patients raised £180 for a cerebral palsy charity and fingerless gloves boosted the Samaritans’ shoe box appeal.
