The story so far

We are a group of people who all have the same aim; to promote the library and all the services it offers. We’re all regular library users, and many of us are involved in the various activities that take place in the library, such as:

  • Lowestoft Library Writers’ Group
  • Lowestoft Library Book Group
  • Lowestoft Library Teen Writers
  • Summer Reading Challenge

We volunteer wherever we can in order to help the library maintain its status within the town.
