We aim to provide a good standard of service to our community, and have plenty of scope for additional volunteers to join us and help us continue this much appreciated service. If you are interested in helping please let us know - induction and training for the library systems will be provided.

We are currently planning a range of activities and more information will be posted here in the near future ...
