The library's first birthday is coming up in mid-October- we'll be celebrating with a book sale on Saturday 15th October from 10am-1pm.

Neighbourhood Watch are at the library for the Police Beat Surgery! The next session is on Saturday, 1 October from 1030-1230. 

Our aim is to offer more to people coming to the library - and to bring more people in to use the resources and enjoy being there.  If you haven't visited yet - come and see us!

We might not have wanted the change, but Leicestershire County Council has offered Rothley village a chance to keep the library open, and local people have taken up that offer. The council no longer pays for library staff, so if we had done nothing the library would have closed. But  with the support of the county council, the library will go on doing everything it does now - free book loans to adults and children, computer use, wireless facilities and lots more.  Council funding will continue for the first two years, then will tail off over the next five.

The library is a Registered Charity, 1163508, and is supported by the Parish Council. We're grateful for the help of the Co-op, the Harry Hames Trust, and the WEA of helping us improve the resources at the library and keep it open. There's still room for more people to take part - we need lots of support, and you can join the group as a member. To see what's happening day-to-day, you can like our Facebook page.
