Great Hollands Library is a community library with something of interest for all ages. You may not be aware that the library offers free use of a PC to all its members. You can use an hour a day to browse the internet or use any of the Microsoft packages we have available. There's a scanner you can use to scan in documents or photos. We also subscribe to some websites like Which? for all your consumer reports and Ancestry for any family history queries you may have, as well as the Oxford Online websites that offer information on many different subjects. All you have to do is join and you can use this for free!
If you've never used the internet and want someone to help you get online for the first time, come in and see us. We run courses that help you take your first steps on the net, set up an email address and help you gain some confidence using the web. Come in and ask, and we'll be pleased to help you get online.
Joining the library is really easy to do. All you need to bring is an up to date proof of your address (like a bill or a bank statement or driving licence) and a proof of your signature (a bank card). If you have a child under 16 or you yourself are under 21 if you bring a photo ID like a passport, the E+ card you'll receive can even provide a nationally recognised proof of age card for you.
You'll find us at the far end of the neighbourhood centre, behind the William Twigg Pub, between the Community Centre, and Great Hollands Primary School. We're your local library, with a wide range of adult, teenage and children's books - fiction and non-fiction, DVDs, magazines, talking books on CD and cassette (children's sets are FREE!) and photocopying. You can also order any item from any Bracknell Forest library and collect it close to home. Myself, Glynis, Lynn, Pat and Alison are always happy to help with any query, especially if you're a new member coming in for the first time. You can phone us for more information on 01344 424095 or email us with queries: firstname.lastname@example.org If you have pre-school kids, why not bring them along to our story times on Friday afternoons at 3.40. We're always happy to welcome more kids along for 15 minutes of stories.
We've just started a reading group in the library. Our first couple of meetings have gone really well, but we're always on the look out for more members. If you're interested in coming along and talking about books, then please pop in and let us know and we'll tell you all about it. It runs on the first Friday of the month between 1-2 pm.
All our events are listed on both the Bracknell Forest Website www.bracknell-forest.gov.uk/libraries and on our new Facebook site, become a fan and view our events at www.facebook.com/bracknelllibrary
If you have physical or mental health issues that stop you getting in to our libraries but would still like to use the library, did you know you can sign up for the Home Library Service? Rod, Gina and their team of volunteers can deliver books and spoken word items on cassette and CD to you at home. Call 01344 352406 for more information on joining this service. We're also looking to recruit some more volunteers to go and visit home library service members. If you've got a couple of hours to spare and would like to help please call the home library service number above.
We hope to see you soon.
