Libraries in Dorset are to have some royal visitors – albeit it knitted ones.
Earlier this year the Royal Voluntary Service started the ‘Royal Knitting’ project, inviting people to knit and craft items to celebrate HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. This project was very special as The Queen is Royal Voluntary Service’s patron.
Some beautiful items came in, made and donated by RVS volunteers and clients.
The display is being set up at Dorchester Library & Learning Centre, and it will then ‘tour’ a number of Dorset Libraries before the items will be sold to raise money for Royal Voluntary Service in the county.
At the same time it is hoped to promote the Home Library Service which is provided by Dorset and BCP Library Services and delivered by RVS volunteers free of charge to anybody who cannot easily get to the library; books and talking books are chosen for each person individually according to their personal preferences and delivered every three weeks, combining the provision of new and interesting reading materials with a regular visit by a trusted volunteer.
For more information on the Home Library Service, please contact Maria Jacobson, RVS service manager Dorset and BCP Home Library Service, on 01305 236666 or e-mail email@example.com.
