Black Friday!

Christmas shopping!

December is fast approaching. The city centre is heaving with folks eager to find the perfect gift for loved ones.

Here are some ideas on how your gift buying this year can help show your love for Jesmond Library.

Shopping online

If you prefer web shopping to braving the streets, there is an easy way to help boost library funds at no extra cost to you. If you shop online, then please consider using easyfundraising

Don’t forget – Black Friday at the end of this week, 29th November, is predicted to be the busiest online shopping day of the year. Please do register with easyfundraising beforehand.

Presents from the Library

Teddy Bears – £5 each

We have some present suggestions of our own. 

Even better, you won’t need to face crowded streets or travel any further than Jesmond Library.

Perfect for stocking fillers, or for children to purchase at pocket money prices, we have calendars, Teddy bears, notelets, books about Jesmond Dene as well as several smaller items. 

Please come and check them out.

A present for the Library?

Why not add Jesmond Library to your present list? 

For example, is there a book which you love which we don’t have? Buy and donate (or provide the funds for) a book which you think the library should have on its shelves.

Remember to check out the Library catalogue first to make sure we don’t already have a copy. Follow the link at the bottom of our home page.

A gift that keeps on giving

We appreciate that Christmas is an expensive time of the year. But if you do feel able to make a donation to help keep the library open, perhaps spreading the payment throughout the year, then please speak to our treasurer Chris Clarke or to one of our volunteers about setting up a Standing Order. 

If you are a tax-payer, with the benefit of Gift Aid your gift will be worth 25% more. 

No matter how small, every contribution is of value.

Calendars £5 each
Notelets, pack of 5, £3

May we wish you happy and stress-free shopping!
