Stoneleigh Community Library is a collaboration between Surrey County Council and the Friends of Stoneleigh Library - a charitable association specifically formed to ensure that, well into the future, Stoneleigh continues to have a vibrant community library which is an enriching and responsive resource for all.
From 16th February 2013 Stoneleigh Library remained open as a Surrey County Council staffed library, using rotating "bank" staff, however there was also a full complement of FSL volunteers present, fulfilling all library duties and continuing some ongoing training. Although it was originally intended that full volunteer running would commence from that date, this did not in fact happen due to a legal glitch with the building lease and until this was resolved the library officially remained in in the hands of the SCC staff. However the lease was finally signed on the 25th June and the Friend's of Stoneleigh Library volunteers are now completely in charge of running the library. New signs in a nice shade of blue were installed on 14th July 2014 to emphasise that the library is now a community run venture run by volunteers, but also with the continued support and backing of Surrey Library Services. Photos will follow shortly !
AUTUMN AT STONELEIGH LIBRARY
Friends of Stoneleigh Library is planning lots of exciting events over the next few months for all ages so here are some dates for your diary. More information on all these events is on the Events page or on posters at the library.
There is still time (just) to enter the reading challenge but you only have a week left to read your six books. I have been told that so far about 106 children have finished, and we are hoping for quite a lot more during this final week!.
