In the corridor of the hall past the toilets, is the village bookshare (not to be confused with the library books in the front hall, which are not part of the bookshare). You can donate books in good condition by placing them on the shelves here, and take a book away with you to borrow or keep, whenever the hall is open for any purpose. There is no need or ability to log what books you donated or took, and you don’t need a library card, as this is not the library. Gary Anstee (g.y.anstee [use the at symbol] gmail.com 01306711907) mans the bookshare Mondays and Wednesdays from 10:10 to 11:50, but you can leave or take a book at any time if you are in the hall. A list of the books in stock has occasionally been published on our beare green community association Instagram and facebook pages, and (this may be more up to date) by Gary himself on the "nextdoor" website, or on return by email.
