Doncaster Libraries Fines Amnesty
Are you wanting to make use of your local library but are afraid to go in as you have an overdue item or items and are worried about the fines?

iPad/Tablet Device Club First meeting set to take place
The date for the first meeting has been set, the club will be starting on 5th November from 2.00p.m. - 4.00p.m in Central Library meeting room 5. The results of the survey had Wednesday afternoons as the most popular choice which is what that day was picked.
If you want to come along to the club will you please call 01302 735387 or email email@example.com so that we can get an idea of numbers as space is limited. Please let us know if you are coming along as someone who needs help or if you are coming as a helper.
The club will be for people to get together and help each other use their devices. Confident users will be able to help those who need it, and as a group we should all be able to pick up lots of hints and tips for using our devices in a friendly environment.
The Murder at the Ravenswick Hotel Event is based on a special script written for Shetland Libraries by Ann Cleeves, the author of the Shetland trilogy, featuring Detective Inspector Jimmy Perez, which you may have seen on televison. After setting the scene for the murder, the audience will listen to witness statements and a forensic report. There will then be a break for refreshments, with time to decide ‘whodunnit’ and why. The person giving the closest correct answer will win a prize.
