Saturday 01 April - Burley Library

Saturday April 1st marks the transfer of the Library from Bradford to Burley Parish Council to be run by one librarian and many keen and enthusiastic volunteers. To mark this event the library will be having a special Open Day on April 1st from 10am until 1pm. Come and see what the library will now have to offer.
Refreshments will be on sale provided by the Salem Church, and there will be plenty for children including face painting, a magician and a story teller as well as music supplied by the Burley Ukelele band and other groups.

Burley Public Library

The library switches to the ownership of Burley Parish Council on 1st April and will then be largely run by volunteers, people living in this village. If we want to retain a library facility, we all have to remember to use it!
It would be wonderful to have some more volunteers to help run it and some more ideas for activities which could take place within it (for all age groups), but basically we just need people to remember that the library is there and to borrow books, and to order books which are not on the shelves. And to remember there are several free computers plus free WiFi. And of course it's just a nice free place to go and sit quietly and read.
Over time, there are plans to open it up so other groups will choose to meet there and we hope that it will host more activities for young and older people. Some new website pages will appear very soon and there is already a Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1536655723331659 . Please help to spread the word. If you would like to get more involved with the library, please email clerk@burleyparishcouncil.org.uk
