LATE OPENING ON MONDAY 25th MARCH 2022 Our library will remain closed until 2 p.m. on Monday 14th March to enable our volunteers to attend the funeral of our dear friend Carole, who has volunteered with us, since our community library opened in May 2015. She was never happier than when she was reading to the children in the library and her smiling face and kindness will be missed by our volunteers and everyone who knew her.

TUESDAY 30 NOVEMBER 2021 at 7 p.m ZOOM SESSION – A HOUSE THROUGH TIME – Our own local version of the David Olusoga TV series. It’s about Fawdon House which today is the Northumbrian Piper public house on Red House Farm but has had more than a dozen fascinating tenants over almost two centuries – from Newcastle’s first postmaster and several war heroes to an international footballer and a renowned industrialist. This illustrated talk tells the story of the building and of many of its occupants. INTERESTED? Email fawdoncommunitylibrary@gmail.com to receive your Zoom link.
