Bovingdon Community Library

In April 2018 a committee was formed to manage the conversion with the library services of our village Library into a Community Library run by volunteers.

On Monday 4th February 2019 we became a fully fledged Community Library run by volunteers for the benefit of the Community, with 20 hours of on-site library staff support. 

The Library is open 30 hours a week.
