Events at Harbury Village Library in 2020

It's not just books and coffee at Harbury Village Library, and 2020 is going to be no exception. We've got something planned for everyone, but if you'd like to suggest some other activity, or to run your own event, eMail us at

Tunes and TalesEvery Thursday morning at 9.15, there are Tunes and Tales sessions for toddlers and pre-school children. Come along and while the children listen to stories and sing along with the songs, try the wonderful coffee and cakes in Biblio's Cafe.

Your own Event or Party. The Library has a perfect space, available in the daytime (when Biblio’s Café is not open) or in the evenings. Tea & coffee making facilities are available.

Board Games. Plans are under way for Board Games afternoons in the library. More information soon. 

Classic Book Group. Harbury Village Library has a new Book Group with a bit of a difference. You get the chance to read and discuss the "classic" books that you always intended to read, but never got round to. Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 21st January at 7.30 in the library when we'll be talking about "Frankenstein" by Mary Shelley. If you'd like to keep up to date with what's happening with the Classic Book Group, eMail us at and we'll add you to our Book Group mailing list. There's more information on our Book Group page.

Desert Island Music Choice Night
Come along with the name of your Desert Island essential track (and reasons for choosing it/your story behind it), hear it and share to create a compilation. More information soon.

French Classes. Following the success of our Spanish Classes, we hope to launch French Classes in the New Year.  There's more information on our French Classes page where you can fill in a short survey about which days and times are best for you, what type of class you’re interested in, and how good your French is.

Meet the Author. We've already had evenings with local authors Angela HuthGilly Mara and Lee Sterrey; screenwriter Andrew Davies, and Mills and Boon authors Ellie Darkins and Janice Preston. After Christmas we'll have a chance to meet another famous writer and broadcaster, but I'm afraid you'll have to wait a little longer before we announce details. 

Poetry Evening. Early in the New Year we will have a Poetry Evening where you can come along and read some of your poems, or favourite poems by other writers, and listen to work by other local poets. We'll also be featuring music by a local composer, so watch this space for details.

Pop Up Events, Displays and Exhibitions
Throughout the year the we hope to host a number of Pop-Up Events in the library, highlighting local organisations and causes. Our next event is on Wednesday 15th January at 6.30 pm, when the Southam Safer Neighbourhood Team will be hosting a Home Security event. There's more information on our Pop-up Events page. If you'd like to hold your own pop-up event please contact us at and we'd be happy to organise it with you.

Publishing and how to self publishJeremy Atkins, owner of Harbury publishing company Fernhurst Books, will host a free session about self publishing on Wednesday 5th February at 7.30 pm. Free tickets available at the library from January 6th. More information available on our Self Publishing Event page.
