Based in the picturesque village of Shenstone, the library has been a well loved and important part of the community since it first opened in 1953.
However, In 2016 we found out that our beloved village library in Shenstone was in danger of closing as a result of the cuts to library funding. Knowing the detrimental effect this would have on the village and the community a determined group of villagers set about negotiating the passing over of Shenstone Library into their hands to be run as a community library on behalf of Staffordshire County Council, who continue to own the book stock and buildings, and pay for essential running costs.
The Library is now run by an amazing set of volunteers who help out in all aspects from running our thriving Coffee Shop to reading stories to little ones in our Friday Story Time.
We’ve got big plans for our Village Library and we’re looking forward to seeing it grow and be the huge success we know it can be, but most importantly we hope we’ve created a place where reading and a love of books can thrive in a friendly atmosphere.
We look forward to welcoming you to Shenstone Library soon.
