There’s lots happening at Retford Library in October:

  • Retford Library’s 90th Birthday
    Friday 6th October
    Join staff and volunteers to celebrate this wonderful event in the life of Retford Library. Further details will be available nearer the time, but the library will host a display to show the library’s history and a Reminiscence Book to include any special memories you have of Retford Library will be available before and after this date.
  • Art Workshop Big Draw 2017
    Saturday 14th October, 10.30am to 12.30pm
    Come along and join in the fun with the library’s artist, whatever your age or drawing ability. Make your mark by moving your body, use craft cardboard shoes with textured soles to stamp your way down long lengths of paper and create textured rollers to print miles of amazing pattern. This event is free and there is no need to book, just drop in. It is suitable for all ages.
  • Pirate Day
    Wednesday 25th October, 10.30am to 3.00pm

  • Coast Stories — A Cinematic Trip to England’s Sinister Seaside — A talk by Martin Jones
    Monday 30th October, 7.00pm to 8.30pm
    Martin will take the audience through a selection of films set in or around coastal resorts suggesting that vampires, ghosts, psychos, mad scientists and murderers are as much a part of our seaside heritage as fish and chips, buckets and spades and deckchairs. Tickets for this event cost £2.00, to include refreshments and booking is essential.
