Update - Wednesday 18th March


Dear All


We have been asked to advise our parents and carers that the CSG Village library will be closed from tomorrow.


There will be a fines amnesty on all borrowed items but this is in line with all of the Buckinghamshire County libraries.


Kind regards




There is a slight change to this email.


The library is open today Wednesday 18th March until 1pm and then open on Saturday 21st from 10am to 1pm.  The library will then be closed for the duration of the crisis.

We work closely with the Community Library.


The library supports our Reading Eggs programme and many children participate in the annual Summer and Winter Reading Challenges.

The community library asked our Junior School to tell them their favourite books - and here they are at the library. What a great selection!
