Covid 19 update.
Dear all, just Di, Gillian and Nick,
Touching base in Lockdown. We are currently zooming every month with nearly all of us able to Zoom and those who are not, keeping in contact with fellow members through e mail.
We send out little snippets like book recommendations, information about book programmes, readings and discussions on tv and radio and excellent links like The Hay Festival website, with a few amusing anecdotes along the way.
“It is with the reading of books the same as with looking at pictures; one must without doubt, without hesitations, with assurance, admire what is beautiful.” Van Gogh"
Good apps to try are Litsy, Serial Box, Goodreads, Shelfie and many more.
If you have a problem getting a book The Library Service can help or we can!
Anyway remember books contain many things pictures poetry, facts and best of all inspiration, company and peace.
All the best from us for now.
Di, Gillian and Nick.
