Liz Twist MP presents the library with an Award

Whickham Volunteer Library was nominated and received the Angel Award which was presented by Liz Twist, MP.
We were nominated by a member of our community as recognition for the contribution that the library has made during these difficult times.
We are delighted to see our customers returning to the library and hope to welcome many more in the days ahead.

We do not know who the nomination was from but we would love to hear your views on the service the library provides.

THANK FOR YOUR SUPPORT
AT OUR
BOOK SALE

Despite the chill in the air, the library donated book sale was a great success thanks to the generosity of our community.

We raised £204 for library funds and it was fantastic to be out and about in the village once again.

The library is open now for limited browsing and computer use so check out the details on the website for opening times.

Watch this space for the date of our next sale sometime in October.

We look forward to seeing you then.
