Thanks to a substantial grant from the European Union we are remodelling our interior to ensure a financially-sustainable future for the volunteer-run community library, including a new coffee shop and a function room. We close at midday on Saturday 23rd February 2019. A temporary library will be operating in nearby Bethesda Chapel between Monday 4 March and Saturday 113 April. Here, our regular Thursday Coffee Morning, Monday and Wednesday Lego Clubs, and Tuesday pre-school Storytime will continue. The refurbished library is scheduled to re-open on Monday 29 April 2019. 2 retweets

Good news: We have been awarded a substantial European Union grant to allow remodelling of the library interior to provide a sustainable future for the community library and activity centre.  The refurb will begin on 23 Feb 2019, when the library will be closed for a week. Then, it will operate from the nearby Bethesda Chapel until the refurbished library building opens in April 2019. Further updates to follow.
