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.

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'.
Toddler Time takes place in the library every Monday afternoon in term time at 2.30pm until 2.55pm (designed to fit in with school pick up time).
This is for children from about 18 months old to three years old.
Bookstart Bear welcomes the children with his action song.
Each week there are two or three stories from the library’s children's collection, interspersed with songs and rhymes linked to the different weekly themes, e.g. counting, colours, on the farm, zoo animals, vehicles, dinosaurs.
Baby Rhyme time takes place at 10.30 am on Thursday mornings during term time.
Baby Rhyme Time
Weekly half-hour sessions are welcoming, interactive and include songs, rhymes and story time for babies and new mums. You'll be introduced to a specialist baby-development guest each week and meet with other families.

Space is limited to ensure everyone has enough room to feel comfortable and enjoy each session. Following Covid guidelines, it's important for families not to attend if they are showing any signs of illness or have been in contact with anyone who may have a virus or is self-isolating.
