What's new and what's on at Mickleover Library?

Mickleover Library

Fri 13 Sep 2019

Over the past couple of months we have been improving the look and feel of Mickleover library by removing old fixed shelving and replacing it with modern movable units in order to create more space for events and activities.

As part of the improvements we have added a selection of new titles for adult and children and refreshed the existing collections. We are also introducing a Classics collection, which has been requested by customers.

The library also offers a range of events and activities throughout the year

A new adult book group has been launched and it is already full. We would like to host a second book group, so if you are interested in joining a new group, please contact the library or email us.
