"As many of our residents may know we are now a 'Statutory Library Service' under the title of a Community Library. This means we are funded by Northamptonshire Council but staffed totally by volunteers. After lockdown we are now back open for our normal opening hours of Tuesday and Friday afternoons and Wednesday mornings. Like all venues we were made to shut due to the pandemic last year but we have opened when we can for book swap and click and collect. We have a merry band of volunteers who even though we were back in a full lockdown have managed to amass over 150 hours since the start of the New Year. One task they have completed is a full stock take of more that 7000 books which we have in our library. This year we have big plans to improve the facilities and we are looking at various projects including landscaping the outdoor area to the front of the library and updating the kitchen. We are having an open day on Saturday 1st May in the afternoon and we encourage all to pop in at some point and see what we have to offer. In addition there will be free craft packs for younger children. As always we are always looking for new volunteers and if you are interested please do get in touch. We have an active Facebook page and we invite you to follow that so you can be kept up to date with what is going on. We obviously can't see our events programs getting back to normal at the moment but we will return to activities as soon as we are able."
