  • Buckfastleigh ‘Green Library’ corner: Selecting Items

    Posted on May 27th, 2010 andy 1 comment

    As you may know, we have received £400 from Teignbridge DC to buy materials for our ‘Green Library’ corner in Buckfastleigh library.

    The committee members have drawn up a shortlist of books and DVDs to get, but we would like your input – let us know which of these items you would support/recommend and any extra stuff that we don’t have listed here. We would especially like to see some stuff for children in here.  Email info@buckthetrend.info with your recommendations.

    If you would like to contribute your favourite title, or donate some money, please take it to the library and let the staff know it is for the Buck the Trend ‘Green library corner’.

    Thanks,

    Andy Stokes, Secretary
