Library Appeal for Donations
We Need Jig-Saw's Please

We are looking for donations of good quality and complete jig-saws, our supply is getting low and with so many people staying at home there is a great shortage of them, which is a little sad for those members of our community that enjoy nothing more than relaxing with a good jig-saw, especially now that the nights are getting longer.

We sell all donated jig-saws for a bargain price of £1.00 each, the money from these sales goes in to our funds and helps with the general maintenance costs of keeping the library open.

So if you have any jig-saws please bring them down to the library during our opening times (10:00am and 12 noon on Monday to Saturday and 1:00 and 4:00pm on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday). looking forward to seeing you soon.

thank you for your support.

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.
