Regular Events

HCL is home to a number of regular events for both adults and children. To see when the next event is, please view our calendar.


Bounce and Rhyme: Thursday Mornings 11.00 - 11.30am Term time only.

A fun session for pre school children, with singing, actions and stories.


Computer Basics Sessions: Appointment Based

Terrified of using a computer? Not to worry, help is at hand from Roy- a super volunteer who will go through the absolute fundamentals of using a computer, right down turning it on and using a mouse. To book an appointment please ask at the counter- leave your details and Roy will contact you directly to arrange a free one-to-one appointment in the library on one of our public access computers. You'll be a whizz in no time!


Children's Crafts: Saturdays 10.30am - 12pm

This free event has proved extremely popular and children of all ages are welcome to join in. A very relaxed atmosphere where children can indulge their creativity, even if the result is a glitter creature with 5 wiggly eyes! Click here for a glimpse of some of the masterpieces that have been created.

Please note all children must be accompanied by an adult.


Knit & Natter: Tuesdays 10am - 12pm

The name of the event is self-explanatory- if you like knitting (or even if you don't) come and have a chat with lovely people in a warm and friendly setting.


Lego Club: Saturdays 10am - 12pm

Popular with children and parents alike, this is a wonderful opportunity for budding architects to build something incredible with like-minded children. Perfect if you aren't keen on scissors and glue like those attending the rival craft group at the other end of the library. Suitable for children that are old enough to know not to eat the Lego...

Please note all children must be accompanied by an adult.


Spinning Group: Thursdays 10am - 12pm

No, not the type you'd do in a gym! If you enjoy the art of handspinning wool and other fibres or would like to learn more, our group of delightful spinners would be pleased to show you how it's done! Come along from 10am until 12 noon every Thursday.


Storytime: Tuesdays 2.30pm

Come along and listen to a fascinating story or three being told by our wonderful volunteer bard. Suitable for preschoolers.

Please note all children must be accompanied by an adult.


Tablet Taster Sessions: Fridays; Appointment Based

Free one to one sessions with a friendly member of staff to help you learn all sorts about your tablet. Advanced booking is required so please ask at the counter or ring up to arrange an appointment, which usually lasts for just under an hour.
