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 55 members.

Recent successes

  • Our secretary Sylvia Knights was nominated and voted to the Suffolk’s Libraries IPS board in September 2015, she has also been appointed Vice Chair
  • Raised funds to redecorate main library in November 2014
  • Installed 3 additional public computers for free customer use
  • Jointly purchased a Harold Steggles Shell advertisement poster on behalf of the town, now displayed within the Library.
