The Correze English Library

Post by DC on Tue Jul 23, 2013 12:16 pm

Do you speak English? Would you like to improve your English?

Our English Library, for all those who want to borrow and read books in English, has been running for over a year now. We have approaching 100 members, both French and English speaking. We have well over 2,000 books already, with more arriving all the time, plus a growing collection of DVDs and CDs. But there is more we want to do. We want to act as a meeting point, and not just for the English speaking community - we hope to start French and English classes and conversation groups. We want to be the base for clubs – we already have a Writers’ Club. We also hope to be an information centre, able to assist or at least point people in the right direction.

We are lucky enough to be in the purpose built library of the Chateau de Bellefond near Lagrauliere, thanks to the very generous owner of this delightful and historical 17th century chateau, Janie Busch.

Membership of the library is 15€ a year for families, 10€ a year for single people and 7€ a year for students, and we are open on Saturday afternoons from 2.30 – 5pm – and refreshments are be available.

We have already given a lot of surplus books to other small libraries – and we would be happy to discuss setting up a “branch” elsewhere!
