Autumn / Winter ActivitiesIt's not just books and coffee at Harbury Village Library, and this Autumn and Winter is no exception. We hope we've got something planned for everyone, but if you'd like to suggest some other activity, or to run your own event, please contact us at

Antiques Valuation Evening
. Hanson's and Valuers will be back for an Antiques Valuation Evening on Tuesday 19th November. Come along and see if you too have a valuable Tiffany brooch!

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

Classic Book Group. A new reading group at Harbury Village Library where you get the chance to read and discuss the "classic" books that you always intended to read, but never got round to. Our first meeting was on Tuesday 22nd October when we discussed "A Tale of Two Cities" by Charles Dickens. 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.

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. (This event is currently under development)

French Classes. Following the success of our Spanish Classes, we hope to launch French Classes in the New Year.  Surveillez cet endroit! 

Meet the Author. We've already had evenings with local authors Angela Huth, Gilly 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 Displays and Exhibitions. On Friday December 6th, from 10 am 'til midday, we'll be hosting a pop up session by Warwickshire Vision Support. If you'd like to hold your own pop up event at Harbury Village Library, please contact us and we can make the necessary arrangements.

Spanish Classes. In
September we started running two Spanish language classes weekly on Thursday evenings. It's not too late to join! For more information please check out the Spanish Language Classes on our website.

Tottering Towers, a Murder Mystery.
By popular demand, a third new fun evening written by local writer John Stringer, with help from Rob and Helen. This event will take place on Wednesday 13th November at 7.30 pm & Wednesday 20th November at 7.30 pm. Tickets are available now at the library.

Tunes and Tales. Every 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.
