The 'Every child a library member' scheme

Chris Franks writes:
The Community Library was delighted to welcome year 4 pupils as a part of the ‘Every child a library member’ scheme. Each year 4 pupil received a special library card along with bag for library books. There was a question and answer session and the children raised a range of suggestions to improve what is on offer. The Community Library is now run by volunteers and is very keen to develop links across the community. Here’s the children of St Andrews and Dinas Powys Primary Schools along with fellow Library trustee Keith Hatton (and Volunteer Angela Wing in one picture) and myself as they are about to choose their books.

Evening of Music

The first large scale fundraiser for Dinas Powys Community Library on Friday 24 March 2017 in the Parish Hall exceeded all expectations. The evening of music was a sell out.

The night saw Emyr Wyn Jones a baritone accompanied by Conal Bembridge Sayers on the piano perform a varied and enjoyable repertoire.

Both had studied at the Welsh College of Music and Drama. Music included Vagabond, Der Gartnes, Bright is the Ring, Pan Ddaw’s Nos, Some Enchanted Evening, Dafydd y Garren Wen and Captain Stratt.

The Community Library is developing and is offering more to young and old. Come along and see what’s on offer.
