This took place on 23rd April at the Community Centre following many hours of hard work by Committee Members and volunteers on the preceding day. These ensured a well-attended event where many hundreds of books - paper-back and hard-back, fiction and non-fiction - caught the attention of the many visitors. As did the tables loaded with attractive bric-a-brac, some of it looking quite valuable. We were pleased to welcome Councillor Jonathan Johnson, Chairman of Rother District Council (pictured below with his chain of office) and members of his family.










MP helps Little Common Library to celebrate its 15th anniversary

(Report from the Bexhill Observer 2nd August 2017)

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, and 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 35 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.
