On Thursday 5-Feb. The Bogota Public Library held their latest meeting of the Dr. Who club. Started by Director Radwa Ali this is a chance of followers of the BBC series to meet, watch , and discuss episodes with others. It is also a chance for those who have heard about the show , and would like to find out more about. The idea for the group meet-up was started by Ms. Ali as a chance for some friends to get together and watch old shows. When she was appointed the Director of the Bogota Library she found the opportunity to expand the group and introduce it to Bogota. She is hoping to bring in resident to the Library that would like to see more of the show. She is also thinking that this would give people outside of the Borough a good reason to visit the Bogota Library , and find out what else they have to offer. The next meeting is scheduled to be on Thursday 26-Feb. starting at 7:30p. They normally are to meet in the Seniors Center, However the most recent view was held in the Borough Council Chamber due to the Council meeting was moved to the larger Senior Center. The view on 5- Feb was a small group which was explained by the fact of the weather , and the chance of venue. Ms. Ali did note that the previous meeting was attended by a larger number than she expected, and is hopeful it will continue to grow.
