Milborne Port Library (FOMPL) March Newsletter

Posted by
Milborne Port Library

We would like as many people in our local community to be kept up todate with the 

events and news of the Friends of Milborne Port Library (FOMPL) work. 

The Library will be moving from Cross Cottage to a Mobile Library within Milborne Port this summer. Unfortunately anyone who tried to visit the mobile library on 15 July and 22nd July in East Street car park was disappointed because the vehicle had broken down and the visits had to be cancelled.
