Knit and natter

Knitting

Come along and bring your knitting,

Have a natter while you’re sitting,

Or learn to knit with wool provided,

Needles loaned and stitches guided.

Knitted garments are très chic,

So be in vogue and start this week.

 

Knit and natter is a free activity open to all members. No need to reserve, just come and enjoy yourself!

Reading Shakespeare

ShakespeareTreat yourself to an afternoon of a collective reading of Shakespeare’s Henry the Fourth. This activity consists of watching a BBC production on DVD and then reading relative scenes. This is a great activity for lovers of language and fans of the great wit. The activity is free for library members. Please sign up at the front desk.

Writer's corner

Upload yourself at the WC…well, this is perhaps not what you think it is…WC is short for Writer’s corner and this is a new activity for library members!

Calling all writers: this informal afternoon to network with other writers will take place once a month.  Writers can come and just write or type around a table.  Afterwards budding writers can get up and chat around the tea or coffee pot near the reception desk. There is no reading aloud or guidance or discussion, it’s just a space where people can commune in the act of writing. No need to sign up…just show up pen and paper and/or computer in hand!

Walk and Talk

hiking boots
Time to get outside! Get on those hiking boots and take some time to revel in the great outdoors! The idea is to organise an easy walk once a month – approximately 10 km, 2 to 3 hours, in the afternoon – in order to discover or re-discover the beautiful hiking paths of the Maine-et-Loire. Come along with good walking shoes, protection against rain, cold or heat according to the season…. a bottle of water and a little “en-cas” to keep you going ! Maximum group is 20 so make sure to sign up!

Want to sign up? Easy as pie!

Sign up by sending your name, email address and phone numbers (perferably cell phone) to this email address. You will be sent full details of the walk in due time.
