In the heart of Retford, on Churchgate, facing the church of St.Swithun’s, Retford’s Denman Library is housed in a fascinating old building.

For more details of the events listed here, or to book your place, see contact details at the bottom of the page.

As well as all of the facilities you would expect from one of Nottinghamshire’s Libraries, the ever-helpful staff have a wide range of activity sessions to tempt you:

Retford Library has launched a Creative Writers’ Group
Retford Library’s most recently formed group is the Writers’ Group. Created in the spring of this year, it has averaged 8 members each session and has gone from strength to strength.

For inspiring writers hoping to improve, it  provides a great opportunity for sharing ideas and materials. There are regular Trigger inputs to stimulate the imagination and creative writing skills and whilst members discuss each other’s work they offer only constructive criticism.

If you would like to join this self-supporting group, please give us a ring.

Meetings are every fortnight on a Thursday from 2 until 4pm, the next one being this Thursday, 18th December. The group will resume after the Christmas break on Thursday 8th January.

May we take this opportunity to wish you a very happy Christmas and New Year break.
