For over 100 years, Taibach Library has been an important part of life in our community.
For many generations, it has provided a place for everyone who wanted to expand their horizons as well as to meet other people who are passionate about books, education and lifelong learning.
Since 2014, when the Library was threatened with closure, a dedicated band of volunteers and trustees have been working hard to keep the facility open and flourishing.
It continues to play a central role in providing vital opportunities for people, young and old to learn, develop and socialise at the heart of the community. Whilst the traditional book lending remains, our library also offers much more, from regular clubs for children and young people to gather and share their interests to coffee mornings and providing support and access for people of all ages to make the most of everything that the internet has to offer.
However, it has not been an easy journey and we now urgently need your help if the Library is to remain open in future.
What can I do to help? The Charity set up to run the Library needs to raise at least £5k before the end of May, otherwise steps will have to be taken to close the Library and bring over a century of history to an end.
All financial donations, large or small, are welcomed.
