THE LIBRARY WILL BE CLOSED FOR EASTER FROM THURSDAY 18 APRIL – MONDAY 22 APRIL AND RE-OPENS AT 10AM ON TUESDAY 23 APRIL.

WE’RE WINNERS!!!!

A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who voted for us to secure £18,900 of National Lottery funding as part of this year’s People’s Projects.  We can now go ahead with our Growing our Community project which aims to provide a garden at the rear of the library with access for all.  We were one of three successful groups in the ITV Calendar region who were in the running for a share of a life-changing pot of £3 million up for grabs across the UK.

The six trustees who run the library on behalf of North Yorkshire County Council with a group of 50 dedicated volunteers hope the new garden will contribute to its users’ well-being, combat loneliness, social isolation and exclusion.  We want it to become a place of sanctuary and a place to meet others, bringing people together to build a stronger local community.  We will update this website with details of our progress!
