The Friends of Brixham Library offer practical support for all services provided from Brixham Library. All our fundraising efforts go into improving facilities in the Library and encouraging more people to walk through the door. We are particularly keen to support activities for children as they are the readers of the future.
But the library is more than just books – in more usual times the Friends of Brixham Library have a full events programme running throughout the year. We aim to offer something for everyone whether young or old. From activities for children; to details about the regular library reading group as well as finding out about the local birdlife with local bird spotter Mike Langman. In 2020 we have cancelled most of our events following government guidelines and the need to protect all library users. The Library is however now open, and we are planning an events calendar for the second half of next year, and even a Xmas raffle. The Friends also support ‘Walking for Health’ on a Monday morning and a Tuesday afternoon. Within social distancing guidelines the Monday walk is currently taking place.
