Fashion Show Success

We would like to thank everyone that turned out for our recent fashion show.  We are delighted to confirm that you have raised nearly £500 for the Drighlington Community Library.  Thank you!

Tesco - Bags of Appeal

We would also like to thank everyone that shopped at their local Tesco and chose us as their blue token choice.  This scheme for us now has stopped.  We are yet to hear from Tesco in regards to money awarded, but we will be sure to let you all know.

Co-op Funding Started

12th November 17 – we are underway – see below for more details on how you can help us.

Co-op - Help us when you Shop - Become a Member

Drighlington Community Library has been chosen for the next round of the Co-op Local Community Fund.

The funding round will start on 12 November 2017 and runs for 11 months until the 27 October 2018.

How it works

Every time you (as a member) shop at the Co-op, 1% of what you spend on selected own-brand products and services goes to the Co-op Local Community Fund.

The coop will also give an equal share of the money they raise from sales of carrier bags to us and other local cause.

The more you shop, the more they share.

Who we are…

We provide a library that is open for everyone. You do not have to be a member of the library if you just want to read something in the library, ask a question or consult a reference work (e.g. a telephone directory or a dictionary or an encyclopaedia). You will, however, need to join the library if you want to borrow books or other items or, in most cases, if you want to use the Internet.

Our Library provide books which can be borrowed by members of the library. All kinds of books can be borrowed, fiction (such as the latest bestseller or a classic novel) and non-fiction (such as history, biography, science, travel, self-help, etc.). In addition to standard books, we also have copies of some books in “large print” format, which are popular with readers with a visual impairment.

If the book you want is already out on loan, you can reserve it with us in the library or online. We will notify you when the book is available for you to borrow.

Our Library also collects materials about the history of Drighlington. There is a huge range of material available including county and parish histories, maps, photographs, drawings, old records, and newspapers. This may need to be requested to view.

We provide quiet areas for studying, and we also can accomodate group study and collaboration. With several computers available to access the Internet, peaceful, no distractions could just be what you need.
