Wow what about this weather? :-)

As many of you are aware Birmingham City Council, as part of their cost cutting measures will be looking to close several libraries across the local area and in Birmingham as a whole.

Whilst we are not aligned to the library and remain politically neutral, we agree it would be a sad loss to the local area and community if we were to lose the library.

If you agree with us and would like to show your support for the library, please come into the centre and sign the petition.

You will find a copy of it on our main counter and there is also a copy attached to our doors so you can still sign it when we are closed.

It is a valuable resource and a lot of the community see us and the library as one in the same, so come on, get involved and let’s do our part.

In the short term library hours for the region will be changing from 22nd July, with the Quinton Library reducing its operating hours by one whole day, meaning it will be now closed all-day on a Monday.

Please bear this in mind when making a trip over to the Quinborne / Library.

On a seperate note if you head over to our activities section or click here, you will see a detailed list of what activities we will be running at the centre on our return and what we are planning to run over the year.

As always, we are open to suggestions as to what you would like us to run, so if you've got an idea pop down and see us and we'll see what we can do.

We are also continuing to run a new of subsidised classes, so please come and see us if cost is an issue and we'll be able to pint you in the right direction.

We have also updated our trips for the year so if you head over to our calendar of events of click here you will find all the information that you need.

There are also have a lot of new movies on the way and a full list of what we are showing until the middle of March can be found here. Please note however despite the certificate all our movies are for over 18's only.

Something new we will be trying over the next few months is Facebook Marketplace and eBay.

As I’m sure you’re all aware we gladly accept donations of clothes, bric-a-brac, media, and household objects, as we are charity based these are all sold to help us to continue to run. However, from time-to-time we get donations that are simply too good to just sell at the centre and we feel we would benefit from showing them off to a wider audience, hence taking the step into online selling. Once we have everything setup and running, we will update the website and all our socials so you can keep a track of what we’re selling.

Finally, please remember If you are visiting Quinborne Community Centre or Quinton Library, you must put your car registration into one of the tablets located within these buildings.

Failure to do so will result in a £100 fine, payable to Creative Car Park, neither Quinborne nor Quinton Library have anything to do with administering these fines.

During the last 3 months parking on-site has been easier and most genuine users have commented on how nice it is to be able to visit and get a car parking space.

This system is not designed to catch anyone out and was only installed to allow genuine users more of a chance to park whilst visiting us.

If you are in doubt how to use the system, please come and ask a member of staff and we will be more than willing to help you.

Finally, we look forward to seeing you all soon, everyone at Quinborne.
