Volunteers from Little Common Community Library were delighted to receive a recent visit from Bexhill MP Huw Merriman MP.

He was able to see the library at work and chatted to committee members and the volunteers on duty.

The MP said: “I was really pleased to visit Little Common Community Library, who are celebrating their 15th Anniversary this year.

“This fantastic community service for Little Common residents is run entirely by volunteers.

“It is a free library which provides a wide, and regularly updated, choice, is something we should all be proud of.

“The library team have a friendly and community-orientated approach which makes visiting the library a pleasure.

As a thank you for everything they do for their community I have invited a small group of the library volunteers to visit me in Parliament where I have also arranged for them to have a special tour of the Parliamentary Archives.”

Little Common Library, is situated within the Little Common Community Centre in Shepherd’s Close.

The Library was founded in 2002 by Percy and Yvonne Pearson when the East Sussex Library Department wanted to close their library branch there and the Little Common Community took it over.

It is run by about 34 Volunteers and is supported by Library Friends who make an annual donation. They are a charity and completely dependent upon the support of the community.
