Welcome to the Pett Community Library.
This has now been going for 15 months and takes place alongside the Village Hall Coffee Morning, on the first Wednesday of every month, from 10 -12.
There are about 200 books available to borrow. These are sourced from the East Sussex Library Community Collection and we change about 50 of our books on a regular basis. We have a wide selection covering all genres of fiction and non-fiction and always have large print and children’s books available.
The best bit is, it is free to use and you don’t have to belong to anything! not even the regular library. We do have to take your details so that in the event of a book not being returned, we can find out where it is and to this end we ask you to sign the usual Data Protection form – and we protect your data most carefully. We do ask that you return any book you have borrowed in a reasonable time, but if you haven’t finished it within a month (it might have knitting patterns or recipes!) we are unlikely to be chasing you up for it.
We are unable to order any specific books, but we do make a note of any particular genre that interests you and try to meet your needs in this way. As a consequence, we really appreciate feedback from readers and are very pleased to have recommendations about a book you have particularly enjoyed and are more than happy to chat with you about your choices and interests. One of the books recommended recently was The Betrayals by Fiona Neill.
It is a super, sociable couple of hours each month in the Village Hall, with free parking, tea, coffee and cake available to buy, books to browse and borrow and Badminton going on, too. We’d love to see you there.
Anne, Anna and Vivien
Community Library Notes: March 2020
We had a very busy March Library and Coffee Morning, so much so that the cakes sold out! They are, indeed, very good.
Knit and Crochet Corner has presented another project, new to us, under the auspices of the WI. This is for squares in double knitting yarn, knitted, unusually, from corner to corner. Pop in to pick up a pattern and see how it is done or, indeed, learn how to knit these.
Amongst the influx of new books is a selection of biographies of interesting people from recent times. Paul O’Grady’s At My Mothers Knee – And Other Low Joints was borrowed immediately, but we also have in our non-fiction section tomes about Coco Chanel, Jason Donovan and Damon Hill to name but a few
We look forward to seeing you in April on Wednesday 1st, and we are open from 10 – 12.
Oh, and we still have a few charming bookmarks in return for a donation and beautiful lavender bags for £2.00, all funds raised go to the village hall.
