South Brent Community Library

The South Brent Community Library is located in the heart of the Old School Centre. The majority of the books have been donated but it has also benefited from a lottery grant to purchase new stock.

Librarians required

The Community Library in the Old School Centre is looking for volunteer librarians to help staff this very valuable village resource. 

The commitment is not onerous –one two-hour session every four weeks or so – and the job is not difficult.  Duties are mainly checking books in and out, shelf tidying, and sorting book donations….there are no complicated IT systems!  The library is a lovely, cosy place to spend a couple of hours, and it’s a great place to discover and try new books! 

If you think you might be interested in helping, please phone Lyn Dent, library coordinator, on 01364 73274, or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Book Donations

We are grateful for donations of books for the library (in good condition). However, we cannot accept out of date guides or manuals (e.g. Antiques Guides), Mills and Boon novels, or Readers’ Digest condensed books. 

We also welcome donations of films on DVD, but not on videotape.

Please note, if you are donating, that any books which we cannot keep will be given to a charity shop.

Thank you!

The Library is open:

Mon to Fri: 10:00 to 12:00 and 14:00 to 16:00 (Afternoons term time only)

The library raises additional funds to help cover its costs by offering surplus books to the public. A good selection of books is available outside the library with a suggested donation from 10p to 50p.
