Church Street Library was the unexpected venue for a whistlestop visit from Ken Livingstone last week. Ken was in the area to promote registration on the electoral roll.
After being greeted by staff, he had a quick tour of the library, starting with the Learning Centre. There was a ‘drop in’ session going on, run by three of our excellent volunteers, and Ken was suitably impressed by the number of computer classes we hold as well as the ESOL classes. He was also interested in how popular the classes are, with waiting lists for some and high attendance at each session.
Ken was introduced to the Learning Centre Co-ordinator, who spoke about the classes and the Life in the UK test course. And then, before leaving, he visited the teenage zone and the children’s library, where once again he commented on what a great area it is for young people to use.
