Kent Council Council Libraries Department has decided to reduce the visits of the mobile library service to Hollingbourne to just one per fortnight on a Wednesday lunchtime.

The county wide service has been drastically reduced to save £150,000 a year. The date of the last weekly visit was on 30th June 2016 and the first fortnightly visit was on 20th July. The stops at Troys Mead and Church Approach have been abandoned.

Book signing by Hollingbourne author. @ Waterstone's Bookshop
May 30 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

Half-Term ~ Wednesday 30 May at 11:00

Local children’s author Philippa Joyner is returning to Waterstones, Maidstone, Fremlin Walk to launch the third book in her fantasy series ‘The Anouka Chronicles ~ The Hollow Boathouse’.

Rosa’s world seems ordinary until one day she falls for the charms of a cantankerous boy who pulls her deeper into danger. But Rosa, she’s used to her witchety-Mum and deaf old Dad who bakes eggs to the ceiling. Then there’s Angharad, the miniscule school witch who Rosa despises. Maybe life at Gheptun’s School of the Black Arts & Gastronomy is more than simply winning at cookery? Perhaps following a pre-destined set of rules is the only way to survive? Or is Rosa in too deep this time?

“Anyone looking for a new Children’s fantasy series should look no further than Philippa Joyner’s ‘Anouka Chronicles’. Full of magic, mystery and suspense you can’t help but be drawn into their world. Perfect for readers in the 9-16 age range, great for Harry Potter fans looking for an alternative fantasy world to get absorbed into.” – Sarah, Waterstones, Maidstone, U.K.

“The books feature an abundance of parallel worlds, mystery, peril, suspense and well-written protagonists which readers can empathise with easily. They bear comparison to Philip Pullman, C.S Lewis, Alan Garner and Kiran Millwood-Hargrave, and will be loved by fans of these authors.” – Paul, Waterstones, Ashford, U.K.

Her previous 2 books will also be available on the day.
