Friends of Portswood Library – support your local library!

Friends of Portswood Library was formed a year ago to promote the continued use of the library, particularly in view of the Council’s proposals to close some of the libraries in Southampton in the future. Anyone can join, and the Membership Form is held by the library staff in Portswood Library. No fee is charged, although donations are very welcome.  We meet every 2 months in the library on a Monday at 5.30pm – our next one being on Monday 8 June.
The Centenary of Portswood library is being celebrated on Thursday 22 October from 11am – 4pm. There will be an official opening, hopefully by the Lord Mayor and many interesting events are being planned. A local children’s author will be giving a talk as well a local historian, plus displays by Clubs who use the library – Knit Wits and a Reading Group.   An IT tutor will be on hand to give one to one guidance to introduce members of the public to computers.  There will be competitions, local schools are being involved and refreshments of course will be served.
More things are planned and you will find an update on this page as soon as it is available!
