The story so far

We're a registered charity (Registered Charity Number 1151649), set up in 2012 as a direct response to the need for a community group to support the library and raise funds for further development. We're made up of a board of trustees and 71 members.

Recent successes

  • Sylvia Knights was nominated and voted to the Suffolk’s Libraries IPS Board in September 2015. She has since been appointed Vice Chair.
  • Raised funds at a book sale in 2019 to go towards redevelopment of the library foyer.
  • Used funds raised in 2018 to install bespoke shelving for the children’s library, a bespoke self-service machine stand and a display table for new books.
  • Re-carpeted the downstairs of the library.

Future plans

To continue to promote the library and its services.
