This informal group meet weekly in the library, with their tablets, to share knowledge and ideas.

Please bring your own tablet and participate in our group ethos: ‘Share problems – Share knowledge – Have fun’

Everyone is welcome from experienced knitters to beginners. Library knitting groups offer improved health and wellbeing and a lively group of new friends for all ages and abilities. Did you know knitting has therapeutic qualities similar to meditation? Research shows it can help prevent and manage stress and pain.


Thursdays 

Adult Book Club. First Thursday of the month. 2 - 3pm  
Reading can reduce stress by 68% and risk of dementia by 35%. Broaden your horizons, meet like-minded people and explore the fascinating world of literature. Suitable for all adults and ability levels, no need to book just come along.

Chatterbooks. 7 - 11 year olds. Second Thursday of the month. 4 - 5pm  
Join in our popular reading group for primary school children, to talk about what you are reading, take part in fun activities inspired by the best children's books, and choose new books to take home and read. Did you know, children who read for enjoyment do better at school?

Storytime. For pre-school children. Every Thursday. 11 - 11.30am  
Storytime is a fun and enjoyable introduction to books for pre-schoolers. Sharing books with young children can help to build concentration skills, listening skills and extend vocabulary to give them a head start when they begin school. No need to book, just come along. 

Writers Group. First Thursday of the month. 6.30 – 7.30pm
Share your love of writing with other creative people, and take steps to get your work to print. From short stories, poetry, book reviews, magazine articles, there’s a writing experience to suit everyone. Expressive writing has been linked with improved mood and well-being, as well as more physical benefits such as lower blood pressure.


Fridays

Take a trip down memory lane at your local East Riding Library. Use our great range of memory boxes containing items such as photographs, books and even food packaging to relive the sights and sounds of days gone by.
