Launch of new Book Drop service in Cotehill

Library books

Cumbria County Council library service is set to launch a new Book Drop service in Cotehill.

 

The new service, which will be delivered in partnership with Wetheral Parish Council, will be formally launched by local Councillor Nicholas Marriner at Cotehill Village Hall on Thursday 24 November, 12.00 - 2.00pm.

 

The public are being invited to come along to the launch and meet library staff and Book Drop volunteers as well as finding out more about the Book Drop service.  A children’s story time will also be run by library staff.  Following the launch the Book Drop will then be open, in the Village Hall, on the first Thursday every month from 12.00 - 2.00pm, starting from January.

 

Users of the Book Drop can borrow from a wide range of adults and children’s books, local history books and children’s storysacks. 

 

Stock at the Book Drop will be exchanged regularly by library staff so there will always be a good selection of books from which to choose each time people visit.  Users will need their library card to borrow books from the Book Drop, if people are not yet library members this can easily be arranged.

 

Cllr Marriner said:

“We are pleased that the Library Service is investing in essential services in rural communities. The Book Drop will be an asset to the village and I’m sure it will be well used by the community.”

 

Cllr Ian Stewart, Cabinet Member for Public Health and Community Services, added:

“This is typical of the Library service’s proactive approach to shaping services locally by directing resources to areas where they are needed the most. I am confident the new book drop will be a great success.”
