Thanks to our growing number of Library Friends, many who are also volunteers, we have been able to keep the library going throughout the lockdowns we’ve all suffered. We are as keen as everyone else to get the library re-opened safely and hope that it will be soon.
In the meantime you can borrow e-books and audio books from Leicestershire Libraries Borrow Box scheme. All you need is your library card and you can borrow books or audiobooks from your favourite authors.
We are looking to expand the books we have for older children and would love to hear from readers in the 11-14 age group as to the books and authors they enjoy the most. We are also hoping to improve the IT available at the library and intend to purchase ipads for public use in the libary so if you have any suggestions on how we can make this work for you we’d love to hear from you.
The Library is a Community Managed Library (CML) which means we rely on the events we hold to keep the library going. Sadly, as we have not been able to hold any events for the last year, our funds are gradually dwindling. By becoming a Library Friend you plegde to donate a small amount of money each year which helps us budget for theyear ahead. As a Library Friend you will be entered into a twice yearly draw and be kept up to date with Library newsletters. If you would like to help support the library as a Library Friend or as a Volunteer librarian please get in touch, we would love to hear from you.
