From Knit and Natter to Scrabble, Book Club to Rhymetime, there are plenty of groups and activities running at Lower Earley Library. Here are a few highlights over the upcoming weeks:
Do you enjoy reading poetry or listening to verse being read aloud? Or would you like to find out more about poetry? The Poetry Reading Group is looking for new members. Current members say that listening to some well-loved poetry is a fantastic way to start the week, very therapeutic and improves their mental health. The group meets on the last Monday of each month from 10.30am to 11.30am at Lower Earley Library. The next session is on Monday 27 February. For more information [email protected].
