The Parishes of Luttons and Weaverthorpe, incorporating Helperthorpe

Foxholes Library

July has been a wonderful month for visitors to the library, both for those wanting to browse the collection of books, but also jigsaws and DVD’s. More of you than ever came to browse and borrow, enjoy a drink and a chat, and pick out a few interesting reads for these lovely long summer evenings. The display of selected female writers proved very successful as did books from the collection to celebrate Yorkshire Day on the 29th July. They were so popular that the Library will have another collection of Yorkshire themed exhibits on display at the session on 12th August. All are available to borrow. For those readers unfamiliar with the library, please do come along and see for yourself how much we have to offer. Anyone can drop in to a session and borrow as many books as they like, for as long as they need.  Although situated in the new Foxholes Community Hall, the library is intended for the use of all the people of the local area. From the top of the Wolds almost to the sea, we have regular borrowers. From as far as Scarborough and Driffield folks drop in for a coffee and a chat, catch up on the news. If you have not so far been tempted, please come along if you can. We have plenty of parking on the site. After many months of planning, the volunteers have produced a splendid catalogue. From this, we can identify all our books and can quickly see whether we have a book you may have been seeking. To contact the library, to ask a question, see whether a particular book is available, you can now use our dedicated email address, we will try to return your email as soon as possible. We are open Saturday mornings from 10-12 fortnightly. We serve a good cup of tea or coffee with biscuits for a donation.  Children are welcome, as are visitors; indeed, many people in the Wolds Valley are now so proud of their own library that they even bring friends and family from abroad along. Wonderful. Many people volunteer on Saturdays when they are free. If you think you would like to get involved, not just to help with books, please email us, or have a chat on Saturday. You will be most welcomed.  If you have Facebook, we usually ask that the Foxholes Community Hall pages carry our posters or special information, so please keep a look out.
