Big Christmas

The Library played its part in this year’s Castle Cary and Ansford Big Christmas with a Book Sale in the Library itself – a good opportunity to attract people who might not have been in the building before.


As you can see, volunteering to support the library presents a wide range of opportunities! Well done to all those who worked hard to set up and host the event.

Best of all, we didn’t get wet – (those with long memories will recall the ingenious book shelter which provided a number of logistical challenges).

Happy Christmas to all our helpers.”
