At last the scanner is in operation, and we can now offer a full scan, copy and print service in b&w and colour via one of the peoples network computers. We advise enquiring/booking by phone before using this service to avoid having to wait for computer or advice.

Opening Times

From January 2016 we propose to change opening times to avoid the inconvenience to users of closing at lunchtime. We will close at 5 on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays as we find the library is rarely used at this time, and so retain the same number of opening hours.
We will review this at Easter, or earlier if users find the change adversely affects them.


We will try and provide facilities for, and assistance with, children's homework assignments. Please enquire by phone or in person at the library.

Christmas Fayre.

Thanks to all who were brave enough to turn out on a wet and windy afternoon. Proceeds so far over 500 with a few more monies to collect.
