The Friends of Colne Library have joined forces with local history volunteers to raise much-needed community funds.
The groups have been holding talks to raise money to help the library fund children’s activities, pay for hanging baskets outside the library, and the licence for the Saturday Film Club.
Anyone who would like to join the Friends is welcome to the next meeting on Wednesday January 11th at 10-30am at Colne Library.
On January 18th, the Friends will host a talk entitled “Colne from the Air – a look at Colne using aerial photogrpahs”. Tickets, from the library, cost £1.
Volunteers are available every Wednesday from 10am to 1pm to help people with local or family history queries.
The volunteers have scanned photographs on Colne from various collections and many have not been seen before.
