The Friends

Like many organisations, the Friends has had to postpone events -- and our Annual General Meeting.  A new AGM date will be set once the Library reopens and events can be organised that are consistent with social-distancing rules.  In the meantime, the Friends have a new e-mail address: friendsowbl.org.uk@gmail.com, but our website remains at www.friendsowbl.org.uk.
