Our AGM will be held in the library at 7pm on Wednesday 11 October. The agenda, annual report and other documents are available here.

There are a number of ways you can support the library financially. Visit our support page for more info.

The company which used to take our unwanted books is no longer providing this service, which creates a significant disposal problem for us. Consequently, we are having to be more selective in the book donations we can accept. Please do not be offended if the donations you offer are turned away.

Our library in Lowedges is open on Mondays and Wednesdays. Click here for more info and here for details of our events program at Lowedges.
