Shinfield Micro Library Now Open

Shinfield Micro Library Now Open

News: 13.02.23

Wokingham Borough Council now has a self-service library inside Robyn’s Nest Cafe at the School Green Centre. The micro library, which is adjoined to the café, is open from 9.00am to 5.00pm, Monday to Saturday and 10.00am to 4.00pm on Sundays. The new micro library has around 2,000 books on offer, from a range of categories for adults and children, including fiction, crime, history and fantasy. Residents are able to borrow and return books but will need to visit one of the larger libraries for the full range of services.

The decision to open the library came as a result of demand and a growing population in the area, with Spencers Wood previously being the nearest library.

It will make it easier for children at the nearby Shinfield Infant & Junior School, Shinfield St Mary’s Church of England Junior School and Alder Grove Church of England Primary School to access books, along with residents at Shinfield View and Parsons Grange care homes.

Please note that garden waste sacks and blue bin bags are not available at this library.
