Thanks to your very generous donations of perfect quality, pre-loved books, we have put over 450 new titles into stock in the last 12 weeks..

Please keep your donations coming.

We make use every single book donated (adult and children’s). Some are put into stock, some are put aside for our huge, twice a year Mega Book Sale or are sold in our Tea Room Book Shop, and some are recycled.

Every single one helps us to raise much needed funds to keep the library open or helps to improve our book stock.

Thank you for your support.
