Status Update

Status update 13 November 2021

We have restored the layout and seating back to normal throughout the library. Our volunteers will continue to use face masks and we ask you to do the same. Please continue to use use hand sanitiser before handling books etc. We still have the “sneeze screens” at the front desk.  Families are welcome to browse but we ask that children stay with their parents.

Storytime (for pre-schoolers) has restarted on alternate Thursday mornings. For dates and to book a (free) family ticket online, visit

We are sorry to say goodbye to Lucy Booth, who after two-and-a-bit years of spearheading our Lowedges library project has now left for “pastures new”. We are grateful for all her hard work in establishing the library. If you are interested in applying for the post to replace Lucy, there is more information here. In the meantime Lowedges library is operating on reduced hours of 10am – 1pm on Mondays and Wednesdays.

Our coffee mornings continue on Thursdays. They run from 10.30 to 11.30  and offer free tea, coffee, biscuits, and conversation.
