After World War II, a British colonel and his wife are assigned to live in Hamburg during the post-war reconstruction, but tensions arise with the German who previously owned the house. The movie, co-written by Brook, stars Keria Knightley, Jason Clarke and Alexander Skarsgård.

Summer Reading Challenge 2019

The summer reading challenge: “Space Chase”

We’re pleased to be taking part once again in this year’s reading challenge, from The Reading Agency.  Targeted at 4-11 year olds, the theme for this year’s challenge is “Space Chase”. To complete the challenge all you have to do is read 6 books over the summer holidays. They can be any books, but they must be borrowed from the library. There are rewards for each book finished and a certificate if you complete the whole challenge. You’ll need to register (it’s free) … registration is now open.

Dance the night away with live music from the Bash Street Band. No previous dancing experience necessary! Tickets £10 (on sale soon); drinks available to purchase. Profits to be shared between the library and the Friends of Greenhill School. Note: this event is in the school, not the library.

Another evening with Gavin Extence

Friday 27 September at 7.30: Another evening with Gavin Extence


We are delighted to welcome back our local, best-selling author, Gavin Extence. Come along and enjoy an informal evening, when Gavin will be telling us about his latest book, “The End of Time”. Set against the background of the 2015 migrant crisis, the novel tells the story of two teenage refugees, brothers, who are travelling across Europe to the UK. This is a free event – just turn up!

Extended Saturday Hours

Extended Saturday Opening!

We’re pleased to announce that, following user feedback in our recent survey, we’ll be extending our Saturday opening by one hour, and will now be closing at 1.30pm. We’ll be trialling this for a period of three months starting on 15 June.

That’s a whole extra hour to browse our books, choose something from our bookshop, use our computers, get your hearing aid batteries, or just sit and read.
