Staff and customers enjoyed a special coffee morning today to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the library opening in Lower Earley. The opening was on this day, November 23 in 1987. Customers were invited to join with staff to enjoy home made cakes and coffee in aid of the Children in Need Appeal.
Local author Christine Dodsworth also came along the library to launch her new book “Shandy on Sunday” which describes life in Yorkshire in the 1950s and 1960s and is of special interest to baby boomers!
Cllr Michael Firmager, the Mayor of Earley and deputy executive member for Wokingham Borough Council visited the library to cut the 30th Birthday Cake which was made for the library celebration by our star baker Claire Groves. Susan Brickell, who was one of the library’s original customers on our opening day in 1987 also visited the library today-pictured below with Sue Hawkins who was a library supervisor at Lower Earley for many years.
