Visit the library and meet our friendly team of volunteers. We believe that our library should exude a vibrant atmosphere, with plenty of attractive activities on offer, from weekly meetings of special interest groups to one-off events. Come along and discover new books on display; use our computers for free; consult our local reference resources; join regular meetings of Knit & Natter, Tots Time, genealogy research and cryptic crossword solving; improve your skills with our computer courses and craft workshops; attend special events such as book readings by local authors; view our regular exhibitions from local artists; simply relax with a newspaper or magazine, have a coffee and contemplate the world. You are very welcome.
We also offer the library as a place for village societies to meet (at a small fee). Book via the “Services” drop-down menu.
Some believe that libraries should be places that demand silence, allowing individuals to study and research. That is not our philosophy. We encourage activities that ensure our visitors and customers interact to the fullest extent. Your input is essential. The implementation of activities depends as much on new ideas as it does on the number of volunteers we have to ensure those ideas are delivered. You can help us determine:
Changes in the type of books we stock.
What opening hours we should have, subject to us having volunteers to manage any increased hours on a regular basis.
What new groups we should start at the library. Ideas might include computer training for the terrified; a debating club for young adults; a homework club for local school pupils; murder mystery evenings; CV preparation.
Please help us fashion the future. We look forward to hearing from you as to what you would like your village hub to add to our community’s daily life. Please let us know by sending us a message using the Get in Touch link below.
