Downton Library

The Library is now open on Tuesday and Wednesday from 2-5pm, staffed by volunteers, and the library staff are there on Fridays from 10am - 1pm and 2 - 4pm.


The Summer Reading Challenge has now started.  So, if you know any #WildWorldHeroes in the making, sign them up. The challenge is open to children aged 4 - 11.  To complete it they have to read 6 books (either independently or sharing) over the summer.  They can then collect a medal and certificate from the library from Monday 2 August onwards.  This year there is an extra "Climate Action Footprint Challenge" to raise awareness of how everyone can help the planet - with the possibility of winning a prize. Packs are available to collect now but you are advised to be quick, because numbers are limited!
