A Coxhoe resident has set up Coxhoe’s Little Library and it is acting as part of their contribution to helping people out in Lockdown. It is situated outside of 7 Linden Terrace, Cornforth Road as shown on the photograph on the left.
It may be small in size but it is free, has self-access and has a wide range of books to suit all ages and tastes. Drop by any time to pick up a book. The Little Library exercises its own strict coronavirus protection regime.
The Little Library is partnering with Coxhoe Village Hall’s Reading Room and Coxhoe Parish Council to improve its offer at a time of difficulty. Coxhoe Little Library will continue to operate as usual but by working together, there is e a new expanded offer too. There is a ‘Ring and Reserve, Deliver, Collect, Return or Donate service ‘ from Coxhoe Village Hall, Tuesdays and Thursday 2.00 pm to 4.00 pm
