I have spent the majority of June staring at a computer screen for several hours a day exam marking. It is a ritual I have followed for last 8 years but it does mean that I need little R&R. Therefore I will be unavailable for out of hours pick ups between 28th June and 2nd July inclusive. Thursday 3rd is still closed for 1;1 appointments as my eldest child has a taster morning at primary and his preschool graduation. I will also be unavailable between Saturday 5th and Tuesday 8th inclusive.
Wednesday 9th is the Sling Library drop in session, however, we are having building work beginning on the utility room on the Monday. This means there will be no downstairs toilet / parking at house. Please use Chalfont Way. There may also be some disruption/noise but I hope the 'ripping out' stage should be finished. This work is due to take 10 days (plus additional days for floor tiling to be completed) but should mean we have a much nicer down stairs toilet for you to use (plus storage for us). This is session will also see us celebrate our 3rd birthday (3 on 11th July) so remember your change to buy some raffle tickets. Prizes will be announced shortly!
Consultations on 10th July will go ahead but I will need to have my 2year old with me as my child minder is on holiday. Any appointments booked for 10th will have a reduction in price by £5 (90 minutes £25 instead of £30 etc) to reflect the fact Isaac will be present.
As mentioned to all those who came to the Saturday slings session in June there is no session on Saturday 12th July. Monday 14th Miss Tina's meet is running but will be led by two other local librarians using our slings. Please not card and paypal payments will not be accepted, it will be cash only, and don't forget your £1 towards room hire. The lovely Carla has agreed to be my 'admin' person and will be in charge of hire forms etc.
Thursday 17th is Durham City Sling Meet in the morning between 10-12. 1;1 appointments will be available between 1.30 and 4pm. This is the last Thursday where Isaac will be with his child minder. From the school holidays 1;1 appointments will have a little more flexibility as my husband can care for children. Please contact me if you wish to book a consultation during the school holidays and I will check availability. The self-service booking system will not be open.
