Great news! The incubator at the Library is a success! Thank you to the nearly 400 members who have borrowed 380 items from the library, we also had 108 things you have donated!
Together you have saved over £5000 in stuff that you may have purchased or hired.
We now look to secure funding to move the incubator to commercial premises and employ staff to manage the organisation. As the organisation cannot fund this directly yet, we need your help to secure its future. With your help and other organisations, we will continue supporting the community and prevent the need to buy things that we seldom use.

Covid-19 update - borrow with confidence!
We have completed a covid risk assessment following the government guidelines. Our systems have been modified to allow time for cleaning and disinfecting of all stock before lending, this will include disinfecting on restocking and before borrowing.
Will be operating a fully social distanced pickup outside (undercover) this will also allow help with the use of an item, complete the joining pack for those who are borrowing for the first time, and to check ID’s where necessary. Please wear masks when attending site for pickup. Markings on the floor are provided for queuing.
Donate to the Library
The Library is still in the early stages and as such is not self-sufficient, while we look for ways to move this to a self-funding model we would appreciate any funding to help keep the library going.
