While Knowle Library is being refurbished during early 2008, the Knowle Society’s Local History Centre (LHC) which is normally located upstairs in the Library will also remain closed. The Society has been advised that the Library will reopen on Thursday 27th March. As yet no date has been fixed for the reopening of the LHC but it is will be few weeks after the library reopens.
The long-awaited refurbishment of Knowle Library commenced after the 2007 Christmas holidays and because of this The Knowle Society has closed and relocated its Local History Collection (LHC) temporarily during the period of refurbishment which is expected to last up to and including 26th March. Unfortunately during this period the Collection will not be available and the regular Saturday morning attended sessions will also be suspended. Inevitably the LHC’s own reopening will be further delayed after the Library reopens while the Society returns its collection to its old location. The reopening date of the LHC will be announced in the Parish Magazine and on this website.
The Society intends to use the time to catch up with cataloguing and hopes that new computer and networking facilities at the Library will enhance the service that can be offered after reopening.
The bus timetables on this site have been updated to reflect changes to the 151 route in October/November 2007 but do not include the new 152 service for which only a handful of buses at the beginning and end of the day operate over the Knowle-Solihull route.
At a recent meeting of The Knowle Society in the Village Hall, Mrs Moira Kyles was presented with a plaque to express the Society’s deep appreciation for over ten years of committed support for the Society by Les in his work as a local ward councillor and as one-time Mayor of Solihull. Mrs Kyles received the award with her two daughters.
Mrs Kyles expressed her great pleasure at the presentation and plans that when Knowle Library opens again after its refurbishment during early 2008, the plaque will be held in the library for everyone to see.
