Reminiscence Café - The Christmas Garden
11am Friday 3 December

Join an illustrated talk, to see that Christmas offers much to the gardener. We'll look at colourful plants that brighten the indoor and outdoor garden, we'll create a year-round Christmas-themed garden and look in depth at the most beloved yuletide plant: the Christmas Tree. 
Glad Tidings!
Richmond Lending Library is open once again following the replacement of the library's heritage glass roof and other major repairs.
Richmond Lending Library is Grade II listed and the earliest public library (opened 1881) in London still in use as a library today. So please do continue to visit.

Further good news is that Hampton Wick Library is open once again following cabling improvements and Castelnau Library is open again following some essential works.

We are welcoming back customers for browsing, 'click & collect' and computer use. Please remember to wear a face covering when you visit.
Merry Christmas One and All!
