Julie Blaisdale, Assistant Director for Library and Community Services pays an informal visit to Thirsk Community Library. Julie can be seen back row left.
On 12th July 2017 at 2pm Sonia Butler will zoom one mile across Penryn Slate Quarry in Wales, headfirst, 55 metres above the ground, at speeds in excess of 100 mph! Sonia is doing this to raise funds for Thirsk Community Library. She has paid for the training and ride herself so all sponsorship money collected will go to support the library.
If you would like to sponsor Sonia on this daring escapade, please make a donation in the collection box in the library or by using the mydonate button via the donate tab
Thank you and have a good flight Sonia.
The opening event took place in the library on 1st April. The library was opened by the Mayor of Thirsk. Our thanks go to all those who made this event a success especially the Yarnbombers who decorated the library in their own unique way (see slideshow).
By the time the next training block finishes on the 8th March over 40 volunteers will have completed the practical training. The practical training also provided the opportunity to meet fellow volunteers. Shadowing is well underway and this will allow volunteers to put into practice what they have learned on the training courses. The feedback from the training has been very positive with volunteers actually enjoying the experience.
