On the 17th April ten members of our association met in Falmouth library to welcome the inaugural selections of books in French sent by Douarnenez Library. The books were brought over from Brittany by Marie Bouguer, the Cape Finistere liaison officer for Cornwall. They are now there for anyone to borrow as a normal library book. It looks a good, eclectic mix of seventeen books. Also brought from Douarnenez was a selection of free books, in French, for anyone who would like them. A gift of library carrier bags was very well received.
On Friday 2nd March, five members met in Falmouth Library to pick a selection of books for members of the Jumelage to read. The diverse selection of books includes Cornish novels, large print novels, a book on historic Falmouth and children's books. These were taken to Douarnenez by Marie Bouguer, the Cape Finistere co-operation officer. She will bring back their selection of French books for us to read. These will be displayed in the library on a shelf dedicated to Twinning.
This drawing was sent by the committee and members of the Jumelage to wish us a Happy New Year and illustrate their wishes for the Twinning.
It was drawn by Charles Kerivel, an artist from Douarnenez.
the Falmouth Twinners wish a happy, healthy and peaceful 2018 to all our friends in both Douarnenez and Landkreis-Rotenberg.
