Community Library


Come and browse our excellent selection of Fiction (& Non Fiction) Books. We now have a large selection to choose from whether you like the latest crime novel, Scandi noir, historical romance, modern classic or ‘as recommended by Richard & Judy’. We also have a growing library of DVDs to suit all ages and tastes.

The Community Library is completely free to use and there are no penalty fines for late returns (we just like them back when you’ve finished with them.) You can even have a free tea or coffee whilst you browse!

We are always looking for Modern Fiction and Non Fiction (in GOOD condition) to replenish our stock. Please contact Angela (468396) if you think you might be able to help. Collection can be arranged.

Community Library


W.E.F June, the community library will be operating revised opening times for the Summer.

For the months of June, July and August it will only open on the 1st Monday of each month between 10am and 12 noon.

It will of course still be available at any other time when the village hall is open.

Winter opening times of each Monday (10am – 12noon) will recommence from September.

Community Library

As there will be no electricity at the village hall on Monday, the community library will not be open. Back to normal on Monday 26th.

New! at the Community Library

Remember! there are lots of great new DVDs and books – including a new section of Classics – available and free to borrow at the Claxton & Sand Hutton Community Library. The library is open every Monday morning 10am – 12 noon.

- the full list of titles has just been updated and can be seen on the COMMUNITY LIBRARY PAGE (CLICK HERE)

Remember, if you have any books or DVDs you no longer require you can donate them to the community library for others to enjoy.

Community Library

The Community Library will not be open on either Monday 23rd or Monday 30th December. It will reopen on Monday 6th January.

During January I will begin the process of refreshing the library stock so if anyone has any paperback fiction in good condition or (auto)biographies that they’ve finished with, please either drop off at the library or give me a ring. Thanks. Angela. Tel 468396
