JUST A REMINDER FOR THE TELEPHONE BOX

 

After 6 months we have received very good feed back from many users.   To keep it working well for all, we need to remind everybody of the following:

1.  Please could you look out books for Primary School children.  This is a way we can help the next generation to enjoy reading.

2.  Please do not leave large bags of books on the floor.  Fill the spaces. 

3.  This is a reading centre – please do not leave us Reference Books.  Most of the information is on the Web so they do not move on.

4.  Please do not put Commercial literature on the shelves or stuck on the glass.

Thank you all for your support.  We hope it will continue to be a useful village amenity.

New 'Library' for Shiplake

 

Book Exchange in old Phone Box

The adoption of the phone box on Station Road by the Parish Council has been completed and after consultation with the Community it has been decided to convert it to a ‘Book Exchange’.

The work is well advanced with all metal work cleaned and primed, the door stripped and painted with two coats of Red Heritage paint, the floor laid and the backboard and shelf mountings fitted. The shelves have been made and varnished and are ready for installation. 

Further work includes a qualified electrician connecting the lighting, tiling the floor, applying the Heritage paint to the rest of the box and to install signage.  This final works will have to wait until we have warmer weather and on this basis the opening of the book exchange is provisionally scheduled for the end April or early May.
