TT Treasure Hunt at Library
Come and take part in our TT Treasure Hunt to win one of these chocolate trophies! Collect your entry form from the counter or download a copy here. Die hard TT fans will probably know the answers, but if you get stuck we’ve hidden all of the answers around the ground floor of the library! Hand completed forms in to a member of staff before 4pm on Saturday 11th June 2016 and all correct entries will be added into a draw. Come and join in the fun at HBN Library this TT!
200th Anniversary of Henry Bloom Noble
Come and visit us at HBN Library tomorrow (Saturday 18th June) as we’re celebrating 200 years since the islands greatest philanthropist, Henry Bloom Noble was born! No one knows his exact date of birth but he was baptised on 18th June 1816. Some of the Island’s best-known features, including, Noble’s Hospital, the Villa Marina, St Ninian’s Church, Noble’s Park and Ramsey Cottage Hospital were established as a result of Noble’s generosity. The Library was named in his memory and we’ll be giving out free cake to celebrate!
