Lord Louis Library in Newport will be hosting the cultural event on Saturday 1st July from 10am and will be on till 12 noon.
Most of the activities at the event will be free of charge. There are some that will be charged a small fee, of which the funds raised will be donated to the Friends of Lord Louis Library.
This is an event where everybody can participate.
Rachel Brown, the chair of the Friends Group, welcomes the participation of members in such events. All people who belong to the Friends Group can take part in the planning process of the event or be part of the event, which is a fund-raiser in its self. We are hopeful that this event will be of benefit for the library so that it can be a fun learning hub. The event also hopes to encourage more and more people to visit the library, where they will find out more information.
The funds that are raised at this event go into the kitty of improving the environment of the library.
The supervisor of the library, Jo Cooke says, “The library gets support from the Friends Group in various ways. This include preparing and arranging books on the shelves, reading the stories to young children and also being of assistance in events such as this one. The main objective is to have the Lord Louis Library as the main focus of the community.”
Come on 1st July and be part of this cultural event where you will not only learn about the Indian culture, but also get more information about the Friends Group. More information about the friends group is available on their Facebook page.
Some of the wide range of events that Friends Group has hosted include Isle of Wight Band “Guith”, bingo as well as a quiz night.
There are other events set to take place in the library in the future such as heritage walk and a talk by local historians.
