Recent Event.

Thursday 15th March

The AGM was short and sweet, with the finances in good shape and the committee largely unchanged but with one new volunteer added. Then the Innerpeffray librarian gave us a fascinating and very entertaining talk about the history of the library and a few of the books it contains. Most of had already visited the library several times, but Lara's talk certainly encouraged us to return.
