Monifieth Library news

FEBRUARY is an action packed month at Monifieth Library.

Next Saturday, February 9, is National Libraries Day. In the run up to this, staff are asking customers to pose for a photograph with their favourite books. These photographs will form a display in the library which will go up in time for National Libraries Day.

On the day itself, there will be a special storytime for pre-school to primary two aged children at 10.30 a.m. Make sure you book your place now by popping into the library or telephoning on 01382 533819. Tickets are free but limited.

Applications are now open for folk wishing to volunteer for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

You can apply online at If you have no internet access at home, you’re welcome to pop into the library and use the PCs in the Learning Centre.

If you don’t have a library card, it’s easy to get one. Just bring along two forms of identification - one with your current name and address and one with your signature. If you’d like to apply but are worried about getting online, fear not as the library will be holding a drop in session on Saturday, February 16. You can pop in any time between 10 and 11 a.m. and staff will help guide you.

Lastly, if you’d just like a cup of tea and a chat then pop along to the library for Monifieth Memories on Wednesday, February 20, at 3 p.m. This informal group meets monthly. This month’s discussion is titled ‘The Changing Face of Monifieth - The Architect James MacLaren’. Everyone is welcome.
