A night of great expectations

CHARLES Dickens fans are urged to get some mutual friends together for a quiz night with a difference at Morpeth Library.

The event to mark the 200th anniversary of the author’s birth will include general knowledge, as well as literary rounds.

The first prize for the quiz has been donated by the Morpeth branch of Waterstones.

The event will take place on Tuesday from 7.30pm to 9pm and there is a charge of £1 per person, which includes refreshments.

On Saturday, the library will hold a coffee morning between 10am and noon to celebrate National Libraries Day.

Those who come along will have the chance to see what the facility has to offer, as well as look at and use the new library website. There is no charge to attend this event.
