… we’ve got some ideas how the Library can be useful to you during the lockdown (and beyond, of course). We have games and jigsaws, we have things to try out such as musical instruments, a breadmaker, and unicycles, and we have tools for you to get on with the jobs that you have been putting off until you had time.
Well, we weren’t sure whether we would have to pause like we did earlier in the year, but we don’t, so, like many others, we are doing click and collect – as normal, I guess. Please do go on using the Library. We have our Covid protocols and you don’t have to come into our space.
But, don’t forget that we also do delivery and collection.
and ending up on the ground, providing shelter for invertebrates over the winter. However, they can also damage your lawn if left lying there all winter. So you could use our rakes or even leafblowers to gather the leaves and leave them in a warm and friendly pile in a corner over the winter.
We also have other gardening equipment …

“Don’t forget that the invertebrates that keep your garden healthy need somewhere to shelter for the winter. But they surely don’t need all those leaves that have fallen on the paths, lawns, patios. So if you need the kit to sweep them up, you could borrow one or other of our leaf-blowers. Or you could even go back to basics with one of our rakes. But either way, leave some leaf litter for the creepy-crawlies, do.”
Freya says: “October is a beautiful month of autumnal colours and first frosts. Crisp, blue-sky days are the perfect time to tidy up and cut back in the garden.
Why not borrow one of our garden shredders to help you turn that great pile of twigs, leaves, hedge cuttings, etc. to a manageable bulk for you compost bin or heap. Your garden will be spotless in no time.”
Maurice says: “So many apples and pears are just out of reach and you have to pick them off the floor after they have been bruised by gravity. Or climb the tree, but don’t lean out too far. Or climb an unsteady ladder.
Instead, you could borrow our extendable fruit picker which will give you that extra reach to get your produce down safe and unharmed. Your friends and neighbours will be delighted at what you can then share with them.”
