Full details at 1 Kesgrave Library refurbishment and temporary closure Kesgrave Library will be closing for a week in April to enable extensive redecoration to take place. The library will be closed from Monday 18 April to Friday 22 April and reopening on Saturday 23 April at 10am.

The work will involve repainting the public library area, installing new shelving which will create more storage space, cleaning the carpets and installing new blinds. The work is being paid for by a combination of the Kesgrave Library Community Group and the local Kesgrave charity SPARK. Customers can use any other library during the closure with Rosehill and Woodbridge libraries being the closest.

There is also a mobile service which will visit stops in Rushmere and Martlesham on Tuesday 19 April, and other stops in Rushmere, Playford and Little and Great Bealings on Thursday 21 April.

Any library loans due back during the closure will be extended to the following week.

Instagram Created A Way To GIF Your Pictures With Boomerang

Good news for everyone with short (very short) attention spans. Instagram is rolling out a new app 1 called Boomerang. It allows you to capture a one-second burst of photos and stitch them together into a silent mini-video.

The result is something between a GIF and a video loop — it can be played forwards and backwards and has the same subtle choppy effect of the GIFs we know and love. Let’s say your friend does a sick backflip off a ledge into a pool filled with Jell-O. That in itself would be cool, but capturing a Boomerang of it would be even cooler.

The app, which is available on iOS and Android, doesn’t have its own feed; instead, the Boomerangs (‘Rangs, if we dare?) are automatically saved to your camera roll and can be shared on Facebook, Instagram and other social media platforms.
