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

Contact Jackie Burgess on 720392 or email jburgess@library.gg if you have any questions about our Community Libraries.

Tovertafel

The Tovertafel is a magic table that creates moments of happiness for people living with dementia. Interactive light projections that entice children, adults and older people to get moving and have fun together.
