Become a friend of the library

A community library relies on friends to support it. Although South Petherton Parish Council is a generous supporter of our library, we still need to raise funds  so that we can help support ourselves.

The money we raise will help us keep the library open for everyone's enjoyment and use. At the moment, our most urgent need of funds is to help pay for this website which costs £100 a year. Money is also needed for our day to day running costs but more importantly, we hope to raise cash so that we can provide more events and programmes for library users to attend. And looking to the future, we hope to expand the library so that we can offer even more services for local residents.

It's easy to become a Friend of South Petherton Library and all it costs is £1 a year. Simply email Peter Kidner at There are also membership forms available in the library.

A library plays an important role in local communities. In ours you can find  books for entertainment, research or education. We have two spanking new computers that are a joy to use, there are DVDs and audio books available and, on Saturdays, there's Lego club. These are just the beginning and by becoming a Friend of South Petherton Library, you'll help us achieve even more for the present and for the future. We hope you'll join us on this exciting venture.

Remember, simply email Peter Kidner to join us. Friends of South Petherton Library is a registered charity in England and Wales.

Happy Kids with Books
