On Saturday 6 June, the Age UK Darlington ukulele class will perform at Crown Street Library from 11:45am to 12:15pm. This is their second performance at the library since the group started late last year.

On Saturday 13 June, families can get involved in making Elmer, the patchwork elephant, out of milk bottles. The elephants will be covered in tactile materials and will double up as musical instruments. The free craft session runs from 12:30 to 3pm at Crown Street Library, no need to book.

Make a noise in libraries fortnight runs from 1 to 14 June and brings libraries and blind/partially sighted people together in an effort to improve access to books and information. Darlington Libraries offers a range of services for visually impaired people, including large print books, audio books, braille storybooks for children and magnifiers to use in the libraries. There is also a reading group for the visually impaired.
