Gosport Discovery Centre

It was good to be able to show West Sussex County Councillor Jacquie Russell around Gosport Discovery Centre to show off Hampshire County Council’s Library Service. Jacquie is new in her executive post looking after libraries and the fire service and is doing her best to improve her council’s services. I am pleased she was able to learn so much from her visit to Hampshire.

We were pictured with our Summer Reading Challenge Space Race characters.

The reopening of New Milton Library

It was a pleasure to be joined by County Councillor Fran Carpenter to reopen New Milton Library following a £90,000 refurbishment which saw the children’s library relocated downstairs and meeting rooms created for hire.

Also the children had a real treat with plenty of animals to meet. The barn owl and the rats were particularly fascinating.
