Library Closures

Library Closures

In response to the current situation regarding the Corona virus, all Bristol Libraries will be closed as from this Thursday, March 19th until at least the beginning of May. Extended Access is also suspended. There is no need to renew or return books and you should ignore any reminders if you receive them. Unfortunately, and books which you have reserved will also be unavailable until the libraries reopen.

If you or your children are interested in developing their programming skills, I will be building up a series of projects linked to Code Club activities which would normally be delivered through schools or libraries. You can find out more on our "Scratch Programming" page...

Friends of Westbury Library

Friends of Westbury Library

To enable us to develop community activities within the Library, it has been agreed that we would transform into a "Friends" group, with a constitution and a bank account.

A copy of the constitution has been circulated to everyone on our mailing list, and it is also posted on this website. An interim Committee has been set up and the intention is to hold an Annual General Meeting later in the year, hopefully within the Library building...

Community Garden

Westbury Library Community Garden

The first phase of the Community garden was completed at the beginning of December. The volunteers have planted over-wintering broad beans, which will crop in June, enabling a subsequent planting of summer vegetables, such as runner beans, tomatoes, courgettes...

Update - January 2020
Our garden is celebrating the New Year with the appearance of a full set of bean shoots! They will soon need staking to protect them from the wind, but at least they won't need watering for a while!

For more details, and an opportunity to join the group for the next phase, please click HERE
