It is volunteer training time

This week we are training up our volunteers in preparation for opening in the next few weeks. They will be learning how to use the computer system, how to enrol new library users and how to raise complaints among other things.


The library building has transferred to the Fair Oak & Horton Heath Parish Council. We are waiting for the lease of the building to the Fair Oak Community Library to be finalised. So it won’t be long until we can open the library for business!

Volunteer Registration Closed

We are grateful for all the interest we’ve had, we have approx. 40 volunteers in total. Unfortunately we are currently no longer recruiting volunteers at this time. We may gain access to the building in the next few weeks so hopeful the library can open in the next few months!

Community Library Coming Soon

We are still busy behind the scenes preparing for opening the community library. The transition of the building from Hampshire County Council to Fair Oak and Horton Heath Parish Council is still ongoing. So we currently have no opening date, but we are all eager to open the library as soon as it is possible!
