Library Notice: Coronavirus Update

Following the government’s advice yesterday about the steps which need to be taken in the current coronavirus crisis Shenstone Library will be closed until further notice.

For the safety of volunteers and library visitors we will close the library completely.  This means that our planned Tuesday morning opening will not be possible.  All Staffordshire libraries are following this instruction. We are very sorry that our library will be closed and we won’t be able to offer our services to our beloved members.  It is with heavy hearts that we will have no library for the foreseeable future but your health and well-being takes precedence over all other things. We will bounce back as soon as is humanly possible and the library and coffee shop will be back in business. We will keep you informed about any progress or useful information.

Our volunteers are at the heart of the service offered to our community, and their well-being is paramount. We will look forward to re-opening at the earliest possible time allowed.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact us

This is a library where you can be sure of a warm welcome because it is run for the community by the community.

Welcome to the website for Shenstone Community Library.  We love our Library and it’s a hugely important part of our village and local community.  Please take a look around our website, we hope that you’ll find all the information you need on these pages including our Opening Times, our events and even when you can pop in for a cup of local Shining Stone Coffee in our all new Coffee Shop.

Shenstone Community Library is a volunteer led Library set in the heart of the lovely village of Shenstone in Staffordshire.  Saved from closure, our Library is now a thriving community venture welcoming people from all around who share our love of books, coffee and cake!

Books & More

What would a library be without books?

Well here at Shenstone Library we have a huge range of books, ebooks and more.

Coffee Shop

Fancy a nice cuppa when you come and get your books?

Shenstone Library is home to the village’s only coffee shop, selling locally brewed coffee and homemade cakes!.

Child Friendly

Brand new Play Area and a huge Children’s book section.

We know that children are the future and we believe they should enjoy the library as much as we do, which is why we’re as child friendly as possible.

What our visitors are saying…

We love our weekly visits to our village library. We have been visiting regularly for years but the addition of the cafe gives it a lovely family and community atmosphere.

Great to see a small, village library being used in such an innovative way. Lots of activities for kids especially.
