DESPITE the weather, summer is officially here! If you see a break in the clouds, remember to pop along to Monifieth Library. The Tesco Bank Summer Reading Challenge is in full swing with over 170 children taking part.
If you’re in Monifieth for the holidays, you may be interested to know that the library also houses a Tourist Information Point. It has many leaflets and booklets about local attractions as well as information about where to stay and what to see. There is also have a small selection of informative local books and maps for sale. Staff will endeavour to answer any enquiries about the local area and beyond.
Perhaps you would rather look for information online? Visit the library’s Learning Centre, which houses six computers with Internet access, a scanner and printing facilities. The PCs are free to use, although there is a small charge for printing. You don’t have to be a member of the library to use the computers.
Having a visitor’s membership of the library allows you to take books out as well as use the PCs. A visitor membership is also free. All you have to do is to bring along two forms of identification – something with your name and home address and something with your signature. You will be asked to fill out a form and then you’re ready to go.
The library holds thousands of books for adults, juniors and teenagers, from fiction and non-fiction to large print and books on CD. The newest books have dedicated display stands and the staff like to make the library as vibrant and welcoming as possible.
