Rothley Community Library

March newsletter

On Harry Potter night an impressive collection of around fifty characters thronged the library with costumes, quizzes and games. And on 18th February there was another Big Book Sale, with the added delight of cream teas by Cuppas. £212 was made in all from the sale. Thanks to everyone who helped and supported all these events, they all contribute to the library continuing to flourish. New volunteers are always welcome, drop in and talk to one of the team, or email
