Glen Hills Library

Is Glen Hills Library just a library or do you offer other services?

A true community library run for the community by dedicated local volunteers, Glen Hills Library does offer traditional borrowing services but that is not all that is on offer. We have free access to IT, a lovely café and a range of activities to suit all sections of our local community. The library and cafe have become a social hub for the community. The library and cafe provide a safe and friendly place for people of all ages to meet and has done a great deal to address social isolation.

What activities does the library run and how do you decide?

Our regular activities include:

  • Knit and Natter - Monday mornings weekly
  • Reading Friends - Tuesday mornings monthly
  • Creative Writing - Tuesday evenings weekly
  • Stories and Rhyme - Wednesday mornings weekly
  • Coffee and Conversation - Wednesday afternoons monthly
  • LEGO holiday club - Several sessions in the school holidays

Everything we offer is in consultation with our users and we are just setting up a jigsaw puzzle exchange that was suggested by one of our new customers who has recently joined the library along with her children.

You recently took part in Blaby District Council’s community volunteer week, did you find the project useful?

Yes the project was useful, two lovely Blaby District Council employees came and helped with our Coffee and Conversation jubilee celebration which was a lovely experience.
