Woodthorpe Library

Published 7th August 2023

We are excited to inform you that after eight weeks of closure, Woodthorpe Library reopened to the public on Monday 7 August. We hope to see you at our relaunch event on Friday 1 September at 10am for exciting activities and FREE cake and refreshments!

Woodthorpe was one of six libraries to have received investment from the Libraries Improvement Fund (LIF), which is part of the Cultural Investment Fund a programme of work funded by the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) delivered by Arts Council England. Nottinghamshire County Council, partnering with Inspire were awarded £170,000 to create community hubs within these six libraries in Nottinghamshire, transforming the buildings into flexible welcoming spaces for communities to use and enjoy.

As well as transforming the library space, Inspire led community consultation sessions to ensure activities and events are suited to the community of Woodthorpe. Following this, events and activities will be offered such as:

  • Free and low-cost courses on a wide variety of subjects.
  • Get creative with our family craft activities.
  • Board Games Club, every Monday after school at 3:30pm
  • Coffee, Chat and Craft, every Wednesday at 2:30pm
  • Stay tuned for exciting local competitions!

We're delighted to welcome back the community of Woodthorpe to our newly improved library space, and look forward to our relaunch event on Friday 1 September.
