Support our Fundraising

Chipping Sodbury Library

Although South Gloucestershire Council provide our books etc. it is up to the Friends of Chipping Sodbury Library to raise funds for other items such as cushions for our children's reading area.

The Friends hold book sales to help raise funds, and would be grateful for donations of children's books to sell.

Please note these books cannot be added to library stock.

About the Library

Following a campaign by local residents, who formed a Friends of Chipping Sodbury Library group, South Gloucestershire Council agreed not to close Chipping Sodbury Library as part of their 2017 savings measures.

With the help of the Gruffalo, Chipping Sodbury library was successfully relaunched in October 2017 as a Community Library run by volunteers.

Chipping Sodbury Library

South Glos Libraries continue to provide books, CDs, DVDs and IT support for the three computers, along with a self-service machine.

A call for volunteers resulted in over forty people coming forward to help and, with support from Sodbury Town Council, they now staff the library so users can continue to enjoy it.

It continues to offer the same services as it did before and, in addition, is open all day on Wednesday when Yate library is shut.

The large team of volunteers are enthusiastically learning the ropes and are very grateful for the patience being shown by users.

They are more than happy to give their time to keep the library open and enjoy helping people get the most out of it.

A lot of effort went into persuading South Glos Council not to close the library, so please come in and use it so that we can prove to them that they made the right decision.
