About this library
Since 1927 our well-loved building in the heart of the village has had a formal, classical façade, and inside the vibe is friendly and informal.
In 2018, we fully refurbished the library to make the space more comfortable and useful.
Opening times for library
We have extended the opening hours of the library with Open Plus. You need to register for Open Plus to take advantage of the increased hours. During staffed hours just bring some ID that shows your address, or your library card and sign an agreement. You will then be shown how the new system works.
