Warm Space

A Warm Space for the local community

The Library is now available to members of the local community to use as a Warm Space (free of charge), to help those who may be struggling with the cost of living. We hope that this will provide support to people in our local community at a time of real need.

We will be supporting all users to ensure the Library remains a peaceful and productive place to study.
