On a cold and wet November evening the library was surprisingly busy with a count of 19.
We had the pleasure of two guests last night, Sean, Steve and of course Mater. We hope they enjoyed the evening and look forward to seeing them again.
We said goodbye to EH who announced that he would be leaving after 10 years with NNSC. He will be sorely missed for his professional skills and warm sense of humour.

The invocation was a short poem by Ezra Pound read by TH
