Our new Childrens Library is now open!  After two years of fundraising and several months of building works, the Childrens Library has been transformed into a magical world where children can learn, have fun and be inspired.The new design evokes the Bodleian libraries of old, but with a distinctly modern twist. Artificial grass covers the floors, while comfy window seats overlook Market Square. With staircases and raised walkways leading to secret shelves and reading nooks, children can grab a book and quickly lose themselves in their imagination. We firmly believe our founders Thomas Guille and Frederick Alls would be proud of this new chapter in their legacy. Come in and see the results for yourself!From the outset, the Childrens Library Project has been a community enterprise. We are so grateful to CCD Architects and our lead sponsors The Sarah Groves Foundation, the Skipton Swimarathon, the John Ramplin Charitable Trust, and the Ana Leaf Foundation, as well as RampD De Jersey Limited, Norman Piette Ltd and CBL Consulting Ltd for all their hard work.Thank you also to all the individuals who made contributions. Without your support, the Childrens Library Project would not have been possible
