The library has now re-opened.
During the above times staff and volunteers will be present and you can borrow books.
All returned books must be put into the red boxes for quarantine and this can be done whenever the Community Centre is open. Do not try to return them using the machine.
The library telephone number is 01608 811104.
To search for a book use the library catalogue: https://libcat.oxfordshire.gov.uk/web/arena. If you have your library pin number and library card you will be able to use this link to renew and reserve books as well as checking whether they are available in the Oxfordshire County library system, or in Charlbury specifically.
The library is partly staffed by volunteers; we are always ready to welcome new people to go on this rota just once or twice a month. Please contact Rosalind Scott if you may be able to help: firstname.lastname@example.org or you can find out more and register as a volunteer here: https://www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/cms/content/becoming-community-library-volunteer (choose Charlbury Library from the list)
The Library Manager is Julie Ward. She will be in the library during the opening times above.
This year the Charlbury Community Centre has employed a team of young people, who have undertaken lots of different projects around the town, from building raised beds in people's gardens, to facilitating outdoor and indoor virtual coffee club get-togethers for seniors, and helping with activities for children. This would not have been possible without the financial support of WODC (Community Activities Grant), PF Charitable Trust and local donors. Thank you all very much!
Charlbury Town Council has generousy awarded the Thomas Gifford Trust a grant of £2,500 plus an additional £2,000 to cover some tree surgery work, which a recent survey has revealed needs doing on the Playing Close. As always this money will be used mainly for the maintenance of the Playing Close and also for Community Support and is very gratefully received in these difficult times.
