A Sense of Place: Photography and Film-Making Workshops
Weekly on Wednesdays from 13 September until 4 October.

These workshops will be delivered by an experienced tutor from NWLLA (Northwest Lifelong Learning Association). Participants will develop photography and filming skills with the intention of producing short films capturing the unique beauty of the Roe Valley area, and thereby expressing a “sense of place”.
The workshops are open to anyone, regardless of photography/filming experience. The tutor can provide participants with cameras and filming equipment to use during the workshops, but people are advised to bring their own equipment if they have it, so that they can develop their skills using their own devices.
Please note these workshops will involve some walking and working outdoors so please bring suitable clothing and footwear.

Booking advised as places are limited.

Rhythm and Rhyme
Every Thursday and Friday.

Rhythm and Rhyme is an exciting free programme to introduce children aged 0 - 4 years to the wonder of rhymes, songs and stories in the library.

Rhythm and Rhyme is a great opportunity for children to have fun and learn in a relaxed venue while giving parents and carers the chance to socialise.
