ANOTHER WENVOE LANDMARK EVENT:
NEW COMMUNITY LIBRARY HUB OPENS ITS DOORS
If you fancy some good reads as we head towards winter, a cup of coffee and a chat in the centre of the village, and a dedicated reading and activity area for children… look no further! Wenvoe Community Library is re-opening its doors – new doors, as the library now has a brand-new building in the same location behind the community centre.
Thanks to tireless efforts by the directors and volunteers to secure grants and raise funds, the library team is delighted to expand its services to the community in the form of a dynamic community hub.
Books will form the principle, but not the sole focus of the hub. The new space includes a coffee area, a new children’s space, an enhanced IT offering, and the capacity for local groups to host meetings and classes.
The community library hub continues a long tradition of reading in Wenvoe. The Church Hall, built in 1894 and stocked with popular papers and magazines supplied by Laura Jenner, was known as the Reading Room and considered the origin of the library. The Church Hall later housed a village library for many years before it moved in the 1970s to the present site behind the Community Centre.
The new library building has been built by Wenvoe Community Council, and funded by Vale of Glamorgan Council, using section 106 contributions together with a Strong Communities grant. The Community Library Hub is run and managed by volunteers and will be open as often as possible depending on the number of volunteers available. It will also be holding regular fund-raising events to cover costs to ensure the library stays open.
We hope to be able to count on your support – and if you would like to contribute to this community-based initiative as a volunteer, please call in or contact the team via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Click and Collect
We shall continue to supply you with books on a click and collect basis during library closure.

You can phone us during opening hours on 07526 478740 whilst we are in the Community Centre.
We hope to open the new Community Library Hub soon.
We look forward to welcoming you!
