Library to offer free proofreading drop-in

Saturday 23 February 2019

The Guille-Allès Library have started to run a free Spelling and Grammar Drop-in as a means to further facilitate the island community.

After receiving a lot of enquiries about spelling and grammar assistance, the library are happy to provide this new service that is open to everyone.

All varieties of writing are accepted and are proofed by staff who are passionate and qualified in English and Creative Writing.

Beth Brown, Library Assistant and organiser, feels it will particularly benefit local writers, students, and jobseekers: "A spelling error or typcan determine whether a person will be considered for a job, a university course, or a publishing opportunity. It’s great to be able to offer the public an extra level of support that they may not necessarily have access to otherwise."

Situations, a local long-standing recruitment agency of over thirty years, have offered up their expertise at the drop-in.

Nadine Gavey, Director of Situations said: "We feel supporting the weekly drop-in events to be valuable to the public to ensure CV and job applications are to a high standard, allowing jobseekers to have more confidence when applying and also enabling them to find the right roles."

The drop-in is at 15:30 to 16:30 every Friday in the Dorey Room. No booking is required. If you are unable to attend on this day, but would like help, you can arrange a one-to-one appointment by emailing Beth at or call 720392.
