BEDFORD CENTRAL LIBRARY – TURNS 40!

Bedford Central Library opened on its present site in 1972 and is celebrating 40 fabulous years of public service this September. To mark this milestone, the library will host number of fun events over a two day period, from 28th - 29th September, with the theme being ‘The 70’s’, in honour of the decade in which the library was founded.

 

The library continues to be a key centre for information and has aided the learning experiences and enjoyment for generations of children and adults throughout the years. As well as providing a broad selection of books and other materials for readers, film fanatics and music enthusiasts, the library has free Wi-Fi, and a number of computers available, to help provide more interactive learning for service users.

 

Cllr Doug McMurdo, Portfolio holder for Leisure and Culture at Bedford Borough Council, said: “The library is a popular and valued resource. Many borough residents use the library for a variety of purposes and frequently pay compliments to staff in relation to the wide-range of services. The library marks its 40th year and the Council remain committed to the library provision. We would like everyone to join us and celebrate this significant and important milestone.”

 

Activities for this two day extravaganza will include:

 

· Down Memory Lane - on 28th September, at 11am, the session will be exploring fashion trends covering the past 40 years. People are invited to come and share their memories and reminisce about past fashions

·  Family Fun Morning - on Saturday 29th September, at 11am, there will be a ‘family fun’ morning, with stories, crafts; quiz’s and 70’s character hunts
