Help keep our Library open by encouraging everyone you know to be aware of the FoPL campaign


It has been set up to ensure that the Community Library in Pontesbury is kept open following funding cuts to many council services.


As you may know the Library was under threat of closure.  Thanks to the response from the local community, the setting up of the Friends of Pontesbury Library and the Parish Council that threat is now suspended.  The Library is safe for  a maximum of 3 years on the present site. It continues to be dependent on the Friends of Pontesbury Library supporting overall costs.
