It has been great to see our members visiting the library and enjoying the fabulous range of books that we have. Donations of current, up to date books are arriving all the time, which means there is always something new to read.

You can access our online book catalogue, click here.


Here are some upcoming activities for your diary:

Tots Time is every Tuesday at 11.30am, where stories are told and songs are sung, both these groups are for preschool children and their carers.

The next Poetry Group is on Monday 10th January at 3pm and will then be on the second Monday of the month from then on. The topic for this month is 'Music'.

We are holding a quiz on Tuesday 15th February at 7pm, at the Bowlers Arms. Save the date!


Unfortunately due to illness, Spanish Club will not be taking place on Saturday. Hopefully it will be back on Saturday 5th February.

In the past, this has provided some interesting conversations about the differences between the Spanish and British Cultures. Hearing history from a different perspective, puts a new light on international events.


At Wash Common Library, we not only offers books and volunteering opportunities, but aim to provide community groups to bring people together. Start the Week coffee morning and Book Club, will begin again due course and we also intend to offer other groups to include : What you are reading discussion group, Knit and Natter, Coding club and more. If you would like to help with the running of any of these activities please get in touch as we are always in need of more volunteers.

If you have any suggestions for activities or groups that could use the library to meet up, then please get in touch by clicking on the contact us tab.


One final note, please return any overdue books to the library - we do not charge fines for late returns, but as a charity we have restricted resources for buying new books so we do rely on borrowers to return their books so that others can enjoy them.


We look forward to seeing you soon,

Julia Calvert, on behalf of The Friends of Wash Common Library.
