November news from Cholsey Community Library.

Thank you to everyone who came to our annual Quiz night. This is our biggest yearly fundraiser in aid of the Library and we wish to thank everyone who contributed to a very successful evening.

At the end of October we had out latest and last County book exchange. Please do take a look at the lovely new titles available to borrow now for our usual 3 weeks. Sadly this is our last exchange from the County Library service. As you may be aware Oxfordshire County Council are facing large budget cuts in all areas of their service and as we are a well stocked library our Committee and County agreed to allow these books to used in other Libraries with greater needs than ours. We have had a wonderful service and support from County since we opened and we hope that other Libraries can continue to enjoy these books as much as we have. 

We are such a well stocked library due to the wonderful support from Friends, committee and volunteers who fundraising and donations allow us to keep our shelves well stocked and up to date. As a thank you to our supportive friends and hard working volunteers we will be inviting them all to our Christmas party on Friday 16th December. It’s a lovely social gathering with drinks, nibbles, festive readings and a really rubbish raffle! Please do look out for your “Friend / Volunteer” invite arriving soon.

If you would like to become a friend or a volunteer or indeed both, of the Library, please do pop in during any opening times and leave your details with the Librarian on duty. Alternatively please do email Amanda for more information at or phone 07747012002

The Library is available to hire on a selection of days and times at very reasonable rates.  We can help with single or block bookings during the daytime and evenings. Please do get in touch to see if we have the perfect date for your hall hire needs

You may have seen we now have a wonderful new sign at the front of the carpark advertising our Library. I do hope this helps people to enjoy spending more time in our wonderful library and to become more aware of all that is available in the Pavilion. 

Thank you for supporting Cholsey Community Library
With best wishes
The Committee.
