West End Reading Group meeting #dundeewestend

The West End Reading Group is a book club based at Blackness Library. 
This book club is set up to encourage all people to read and become more aware of the literature of authors of African, Caribbean and African American heritage. 
Meeting 5.30pm to 6.30pm on the second Monday of every month and the next meeting is tomorrow – Monday 10th June – when it will discuss “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings”, the first volume of autobiography written by Maya Angelou.
In this book, she describes her childhood in the American South in the 1930s. 
Maya Angelou won many awards including the National Medal of Arts, the Presidential Medal of freedom, the Lincoln Medal and the Norman Mailer Prize. 
The group looks forward to welcoming you tomorrow at 5.30pm.

Getting things done – Blackness Library #dundeewestend

I recently contacted Leisure and Culture Dundee about the state of the railings at Blackness Library, following residents saying that these badly need repainted.
I suggested that Community Payback could be approached to undertake this and am pleased to have now been advised that this has been agreed.
The railings will be programmed in to be completed in the spring.
