Mayor Supports Darlington Reading Group
1 July 2010
Councillor Jim Ruck recently visited the local Calibre book group in his capacity as Mayor of Darlington. Darlington's Crown Street Library hosts this book group for visually impaired people where members meet monthly. The group members listen to the same book using the multiple copies supplied by Calibre. The meetings provide an opportunity for enjoyable discussions and exchanges of views.
Councillor Stella Robson, who is visually impaired herself and a former Mayor, is a long-standing member of the reading group.
"We are drawn together by our love of reading. The library supports us really well by telling us what books have had good reviews or have been enjoyed by other people. Thanks to Calibre we always have a good choice of books and they make sure we have enough copies," said Councillor Robson.
Councillor Ruck was so impressed with the service that he arranged a donation of £100 to Calibre from Darlington Borough Council.
