ZOOMING INTO AUTUMN
Although we can't host meetings at the library we are putting some of our popular events online so do join us for the upcoming Thursday evening talks and for the wellbeing for life coffee mornings. For invitations please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jesmond Library is a community library, being one of over 500 such libraries in the country. It is housed in a unique grade 2 listed building and is home to a wide range of books which is regularly updated.
We are a voluntary organisation run by Trustees and other volunteers and provide a focal point for the local community and the Jesmond Festival.
During the current crisis we are open for you to borrow books and use the computers on Tuesdays; Thursdays and Saturdays between 2.00pm and 4 pm. Remember you will need a mask to enter the library.
Join the Friends of Jesmond Library community
The Friends of Jesmond Library was set up in 2013. It is run entirely by volunteers, and as well as a free library service it offers a wide variety of events and activities for all sections of the community. We need to raise £30,000 a year to remain open.
