Welcome to Low Fell Library! Our library is run and managed entirely by volunteers. We are a community library and offer a range of services from wide selection of books, public computers and photocopying to a range of community events we host on site. Our friendly staff look forward to seeing you soon...

We are pleased to be able to offer an extra session of our popular Rhyme Time classes. This will be hosted on Friday mornings beginning at 10 am. Alyson and Ruth will lead the singing.
Children's Craft Sessions
We will be hosting a children's craft session on Monday 30th of May where there will be places for 15 children (each accompanied by, at most, one adult) at £5 each. Please look out for more details on our website, social media and on our noticeboard.
The Great North Gift Co
We are currently looking for new volunteers to help with the running of the library. In particular we need people to staff our Friday afternoon shift between 1pm and 5pm but there are many other opportunities. For details please get in touch by email, phone or just drop in and have a word with some of our staff.
We have a new noticeboard outside where you can keep up-to-date. We will continue to advertise our upcoming events and services online through the website and via email but we hope to be more accessible for those who are unable to receive our digital marketing - please keep your eyes peeled!

In the Light of Morning by Tim Pears
Eileen enjoyed this book, which can be found on the shelves, or reserved at, Low Fell Library.
May 1944. High above the mountains of occupied Slovenia an aeroplane drops three British parachutists; brash MP Major Jack Farwell, radio operator Sid Dixon, and young academic Lieutenant Tom Freedman. Greeted upon arrival by a group of Partisans, the men are led off into the countryside.
Despite the distant crackle of gunfire, the war feels a long way off for Tom. The Partisans, too, are not what he was expecting. He finds them courageous, kind, and alluring, especially Jovan, their commander, and the hauntingly beautiful Marija.
As the enemy's net begins to tighten, the group find evidence of massacres, of a dark and terrible band of men pursuing them. As they stumble their way towards a final, tragic battle, so the relationships within the group begin to fray and Tom finds himself forced to face up to his deepest, most secret desires.
