Arborfield Library is open for business

Arborfield Library is back and open for business, thanks to a partnership with Arborfield British Legion.


The former Arborfield Container Library had become unusable and beyond repair so had to be closed earlier this year.


Library services have moved to Arborfield British Legion on Eversley Road and will open with the same hours as the previous library - Mondays between 2pm and 7pm, and Saturdays between 9.30am and 12.30pm.


The new library will be the first in the Borough to use 'pop-up' furniture and equipment so it can be fully operational during opening hours but folded away when not needed so the British Legion can use the space at other times.


Arborfield Library will continue to offer a range of children and adult fiction as well as popular adult non-fiction.


In the longer term, it's hoped a more extensive new library service will be created as part of the major development at Arborfield Garrison.


But in the meantime, we're extremely grateful to the Royal British Legion for providing a temporary home for this local service.
