Wash Common Library

A community library funded and run by The Friends of Wash Common Library.



Due to the Corona virus situation the library is now closed. Please keep any library books safe until we reopen and ignore any overdue notices. We are currently planning how we can re-open our service safely. Watch this space!


Dear Friends,

As society is gradually returning to normal we are now looking at how we can once again offer library services to our community.

To begin with we may operate a 'click and collect' service, through our online catalogue. This is available for anyone to view at http://wccl.slls.online/

Please take a look and see what a fantastic selection of books are on offer at your local library. Then if you would like to join your local Community library, please use the contact form to get in touch.

Members will be sent an email soon asking them to change their passwords, this will enable them to reserve books to be collected at an allocated time.

Social distancing measures will be adhered to and other precautions to protect staff and users will also be introduced. Any books returned will be in quarantine for 72 hours before being returned to the shelves.

Once we are ready to start the 'Click and collect' service we will let our members know by email and it will also be posted on our Facebook page.

Those members who have books, will be able to return them once our click and collect service begins, no fines will be charged for books overdue, whilst we have been in 'lock-down'.

Our community group activities will not be taking place until further notice is given from the Government that allows this to happen.

You can contact us here and you can also join us on Facebook

Please be aware that as a Charity run entirely by volunteers a response to emails may take a few days. We look forward to seeing you soon and being back in touch with our Community
