About the Library

Cheylesmore Community Library is Coventry’s first entirely community-led and volunteer-run library. Coventry City Council has contracted Cheylesmore Community Association to run the library from September 2017.

The library is located in Cheylesmore Community Centre. Books and IT facilities are provided by the Council and the library is linked to the Council’s online library catalogue. We have thousands of books and offer a range of activities for children and adults. Do come in and say hello to our resident teddy bear – Charles More.

This is an exciting new venture for Cheylesmore Community Association. We aim to provide a library service that meets the needs of our community. We welcome your ideas and feedback on what you want from the library.
