Library reopening

We are very excited to announce that we are hoping to reopen the library this July!

So that we can keep everyone safe, we will be introducing protective measures such as screens, sanitising stations and floor markings to make sure we all keep socially distant.

Can you help?

We need £900 to purchase the extra equipment we need to reopen safely. You can support us to reopen by making a donation via our PayPal Giving fund page.

Keep safe and well until we meet again.
