Hayle Library


Autumn is here and changes are afoot at Hayle Library, Sally and Sue will be leaving after more than 20 years in the Library Service.  We’d like to thank all the lovely people who have helped us over the years; we couldn’t have done it without you!  We will both miss our colleagues and customers who have always made it a joy to come to work. We’ll be going out with a bit of a bang so please join us for tea, coffee and happy memories on our last day, Friday November 4th.


We are very excited to be hosting a local author book launch and signing on Friday 7th October from 11.30 – 2.30 selling at £14.99.  I’m sure there will be lots of interest in “Hayle in World War Two” by Brian Sullivan, published by Toni Carver.  Everyone welcome, teas and coffees will be served.


As lots of you will have heard, The One Stop Shop will be moving into the Library, we don’t know any firm dates yet but everyone is looking forward to this new venture.


We never forgot that children are our future and we have enjoyed seeing so many join our Summer Reading Challenge. 

Abi entertains the younger children every Wednesday 3.45 – 4.45pm with stories and crafts and lots of fun, everyone welcome.


Remember it’s free to join the Library. Please pop along to meet the team.
