The library has been refurbished and redecorated, and now has extra book storage space, as well as improved facilities for users. The Library & Board Room Extension was a project of the Commissioners Castletown 2000 programme

The membership of the library continues to grow but the most pleasing aspect of the increase is the fact that the children’s membership has increased by more than 130% which shows that children are still reading books for pleasure and to find information. The membership is now just over 800.

The book entitlement was recently increased and members can now borrow 4 books at a time.

If you would like to join, please read the fees and rules page.

Look out for the Sale Book trolley, all books 20p.
