Allithwaite Mini Free Library
Allithwaite Free Mini Library is now open, located at the gate entrance of St Mary’s on Church Road. The facility is open 24 hours and for those dull days has a small solar-powered light installed with a non-slip floor for the wet days too.
If you use the facility, don’t forget to secure the door on the hook provided marked with yellow and black checked tape. As you would expect we ask users not to smoke for obvious reasons and if there is an issue with the facility contact numbers are listed within the library.
At present, there are books of various genres that will be extended when more shelves are installed.
There are no rules as such, except please return the books borrowed. There will also be comment forms for users to pass comments which will help us develop the library and if successful in Allithwaite a similar facility could be installed in an accessible site in Cartmel.
Our library keeper will monitor the library every few days to check on the facility and to reshelve any returned books.
The Parish Council would like to thank all those who have contributed to the facility in different ways including, Allithwaite & Cartmel WI, The Gateway Group, St. Mary’s Church, Chris Naylor, Ashley Newstead and Mr & Mrs France.
