Coffee and chat in town library

Have your say

ADULTS with English as a second language are invited to a new ‘conversation cafe’ to be held in Barnsley Central Library.

Staff at the library want to give people the chance to practise their conversational skills by giving them somewhere to meet and have a coffee while they chat.

The sessions will begin on Thursday, November 1, and will run from 2pm to 3pm each week.

Councillor Jenny Platts, Cabinet Member for Adults and Communities, said: “The Conversation Café will be a good addition to our library services and is a different way to improve reading and literacy in an informal setting.”

The group will meet at the reception desk on the ground floor.
