Shout out/events at Sydenham Library

21 Aug '19

Maybe I’m missing something but it feels as if the library doesn’t have the most prominent social media presence so thought I’d big up the work by the volunteers and the events that take place. PLEASE BE AWARE the following are all copied off the website and I’m not entirely sure how up to date it is (as some bits of the website have the last blog post from last year) so best to check. Anyways, lots going on for all sorts of interest and a real boon that perhaps people are unaware of. Personally am hoping to show some support by visiting more often as seldom have to be honest.
