Free Events Updated

Hello everyone!

Last month marked a momentuous occasion when, after a few weeks of repairs, the Library reopened, and officially became part of the Cheylesmore Community Centre.

As you know, the Library runs a number of fantastic free events for adults and children. We have created separate event pages for them on our Facebook, which you can view and state your interest here.

Library Official Opening: September 30th

We are happy to announce that, following a brief closure for repairs, the Cheylesmore Library is now open and being run by volunteers. The opening times are the same as before. The process has taken 14 months, but we are happy and proud that we have accomplished this.

The ‘Official Opening Ceremony’ takes place on Saturday 30th September at 11.00am when the Deputy Lord Mayor cuts the ribbon of the new entrance into the Cheylesmore Community Centre. This is very exciting for all of us, as this will also be the first working day of the library as part of the Cheylesmore Community Association.

The Deputy Lord Mayor will arrive in the library at 10.45am to talk to the volunteers, community centre personnel & Library Services personnel.

The ceremony will be followed by the presentation of certificates to the children who took part in the Summer Reading Scheme.
