What's happening at the Library?

Your library is now under new management.

Why not become involved in a really worthwhile community project?

Wheathampstead Library Volunteers are a group of volunteers determined to keep Wheathampstead Library open.

Herts County Council has stopped providing librarians to run Wheathampstead Library, and it is now down to the volunteers from Wheathampstead Library Volunteers to operate the library. 

The library was launched as Wheathampstead Community Library on 17 April 2018, when Andrew Bignell (Head of Libraries and Heritage, Herts CC) handed Chrissie Chadney, Chair of the Volunteers, a ceremonial key (see picture below).
