A busy week at Girvan Library

September 29, 2015

Girvan Library had a very busy week with visits from Girvan Primary and Sacred Heart Primary to explore the Next of Kin handling kit. The children enjoyed looking through the WW1 memorabilia, and were impressed by Alanis McWilliam who was happy to show her knitting skills as she added to the commemorative scarf.

The library also held a successful drop-in coffee afternoon last Thursday. Members of the public were invited to look through the Next of Kin kit, and browse the photographic display of Girvan in days gone by. While enjoying the afternoon, library member Isobel Wilson also took the time to add to the memory scarf by knitting a couple of rows.

Earth Hour PJ Storytime at Alloway, Girvan and Symington Libraries

April 1, 2015

It was lights out and jammies on for stories by torchlight at Alloway, Girvan and Symington libraries in support of Earth Hour. The children made colourful coat hangers for their bedrooms and we even had a surprise visit from a friendly and cuddly panda at Alloway and Symington! Everyone had great fun.
