Theale Library is holding a grand celebration and re-launch event and has a special literary guest cutting the ribbon.

Holly Webb, author of much-loved titles such as The Hounds of Penhallow, A Kitten called Tiger and The Girl of Glass will join staff and customers to celebrate the reworked library space.

The library at Theale has a bright new appeal with refreshments now available every day. There is a new area for relaxation with newspapers, magazines and games, jigsaws, toys and colouring books and a private study space with eight computers that are free to use.

Speaking ahead of the opening, children’s author Holly Webb “As a child I wanted to be a librarian, because I thought all they had to do was read the books. Actually, librarians are amazing guides into whole new worlds, especially for children. Libraries are full of opportunities to discover new things, new places and new amazing characters. Please cherish your lovely library!”

Dominic Boeck, West Berkshire’s Executive Member for Culture and Environment said: “There is so much more to libraries than just books. They provide a valuable space where communities can interact and are often the hub of a community. We want as many people as possible to enjoy and benefit from their local library and we’re hoping that they will also join us for a great day of celebration.”
