Community Libraries

We are committed to making our services as accessible as possible to the people of Guernsey.

As part of this commitment, we've begun an exciting program of establishing Community Libraries across the island.

There are currently Community Libraries at:

  • St Saviour's Community Centre
  • The Bridge
  • Rosaire Court
  • La Nouvelle Maraitaine

La Nouvelle Maraitaine Community Library

Open on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday mornings, 10am til noon, this new addition to our Community service is at Rue Maraitaine, Vale, opposite the Vale Douzaine Room.

A dedicated library room with ample parking and wi-fi access, it offers a wide selection of fiction, non-fiction, large print, audiobooks, DVDs and jigsaw puzzles.

Users of La Nouvelle Maraitaine Community Library need to be members of the Guille-Allès Library to borrow items - if you're not already a member, you can join at the community library.

Weekly rhymetimes at the community library on Monday mornings, 10.00-10.30 aimed at babies less than 1 year and 11.00-11.30, open to all preschoolers. Call the Children's Library on 743635 for more information.
