What’s On in March 2019 at South Ham Library?
As I write this the sun is shining and it feels like spring is already here a huge contrast from the snow a couple of weeks ago, I hope we have seen the last of the snow for this year and we don’t have a repeat of the snow and bitterly cold weather in March like last year.
It is Craft Club on Saturday 2ndMarch, drop in between 10am -12noon to make a Busy Bee craft.
Story time in March continues to be held at 10:30 am on TUESDAYS. Come and join us for stories and themed colouring.
The Construction Club continues on Tuesdays, with the opportunity to play with Lego and Duplo from 3:30pm-4:45pm.
After my appeals through this magazine a couple of potential volunteers have come forward so we are hopeful that a new Code club will start again after Easter on the 24th April for 10 weeks please contact us on 01256 336047 or email@example.com if you would like to find out more or reserve a place for a 9-11 year old who would like to learn Scratch coding. We have a great range of coding books and don’t forget our BBC Micro:bits which are available for a 4 week loan.
Rhymetime continues every Friday with fun rhymes and songs at 11am for babies and toddlers.
Chatterbooks and TR@SH will meet on the 15th March at 4pm. These are 2 great groups for children and teenagers respectively who love to meet and talk about books and take part in themed activities.
Activities for adults this month include the Genesis Sci-Fi Reading Group on the 2nd March from 10:00am-12:00 noon and Age Concern continue to provide computer instruction for the over 50s on Tuesdays from 10:00am-1:00pm; for more information call the Basingstoke Age Concern office on 01256 423874. They can offer you an 8-week course or a one-off session.
Don’t forget we have 4 computers giving access to the internet and Microsoft office software, colour printer and photocopier. The computers are free to use but there are charges for printing. We also have FREE access online to Ancestry, Find my Past, Which? Magazine Online and the British Newspaper Archive Online. Ask a member of staff for help getting started.
