Your Library needs you

After a very successful first few years as a community library, and now having moved to the Fire Station nearer the centre of the village, the library has space for a few more volunteers.  Training is of course given, and your commitment can be tailored to what time you have available - sometimes only every other week. 

It's a great opportunity to do something really useful for the village and to meet other people.  The library has become one of the centres of village life, with lots going on and groups for all ages. 

If you think this is something which might interest you then please get in touch via this website (see the foot of this page) or by phoning 07957 643647.


Our Monthly Themes

Open to all
- each month (when Covid-19 restrictions permit) we have a display on a different theme.


Wheathampstead Community Library is now open once again following the temporary closure caused by Covid-19.

We really look forward to seeing you again. Please drop in and make use of the library.  

Please note: Our Library remains one where masks are required. This is to safeguard our volunteers, the vast majority of whom are over 65 and sometimes living with vulnerable people, and to safeguard our customers.... in other words, putting meaning to the words 'the health and wellbeing of our staff and customers is paramount'.


Regular events at the library

We regret that the following events are
suspended for the time being in light of the Covid position.
We hope to restart them as soon as possible.

Toddler Time

The sessions are targeted for children aged two to four accompanied by a parent or carer and take place at 1.50pm or 2.40pm on Monday afternoons in term time.

To be safer in these COVID times each group is limited to four children at present.


Bookstart Bear welcomes the children with his action song.  Rhymes, songs and short stories from the library’s collection follow a weekly theme, e.g. zoo animals, on the farm, counting, dinosaurs, emergency vehicles.


To register your interest please sign up, giving your contact details, on the list at the library desk, and our organiser will be in touch with you. 

Baby Rhyme Time

Baby Rhyme Time sessions at Wheathampstead Community Library have now been postponed until further notice.
