To find out more please call in at the Book Café and our helpful staff will aid you with your requests.

If you have particular requests - e.g. favourite authors - then let us know of your preferences and we will try to include them in our stock.

The Book Café is not only a Library Access Point but also a great meeting place: try our coffee and refreshments at inflation-beating prices. Two computers, freely available, provide Broadband access. Free Wi-Fi access too!

To cover operating costs, the Book Café receives funding from the Parish Council. However the vast majority of its running costs are covered by fundraising, the café, book and cake sales, events like beer and curry, wine tasting and quiz nights, and our "Friends".
