It feels like it was yesterday when we started the new sessions at both the Stockton Central and Middlesbrough Central libraries but it was indeed one year ago.
Since then, regular sessions have been added to the libraries of Thornaby Central and The Globe Community Library, Stokesley.
The sessions are free, open to all and there is no need to register.
Here is a reminder of the times and venues. As always, it is a good idea to check with the respective libraries to ensure the sessions are definitely on if you are thinking of attending.
The Stokesley sessions are on every third Tuesday and the next one will be on 14 August. The session leader is Michael Hardman.
Session leader: Sean Cassidy.
Session Leader: Brian Whitaker
Session leader: David Smith.
August will see a tour of new libraries by Sean Cassidy. He will be offering taster sessions here:
Billingham (Wednesday 22nd, 2.00 - 4.00 p.m.), Ingleby Barwick (Wednesday 2.00 - 4.00 p.m.), Norton (Thursday 9th, 2.00 - 4.00 p.m.), and Yarm (Friday 17th, 10.00 am - 12 noon).
