Callander & West Perthshire

Thinking of starting a new group?

Suggestions for new groups are always welcome. If you are thinking of starting a new group but find you haven't the resources, then this may be for you.

A resource file is being held at the Callander Public Library which will enable you to see what non-book resources can be borrowed from the u3a "National Resource Centre" in Bromley, London. There are slides, videos, audio cassettes, CDs and DVDs available in many subject areas. Loans are made for a period of three weeks and booking requests can be made up to nine months in advance.

To book the resources and to see what is available look in the resource file at the library, which is available to view on request. A list of topics covered is shown below.

If you would like to go ahead with starting a new group, please contact the committee by sending an email to this address: Enquiries.
