Honesty Library

Welcome to our Honesty Library

Take a book if you’d like one. Leave a book if you’d like to help!

At the heart of The Mill is our Honesty Library, stocked full of books for all ages,  donated by local people.  There’s a wide choice to suit all ages.  Anyone can borrow a book without any formalities.

Having a library open for the community  has always been a big part of The Mill. When the St James Street Library closed in 2007 we campaigned to bring the building back into public, and in Autumn 2011 reopened the building as The Mill, a multi-purpose community space.

Our library is looked over by a team of volunteers led by a retired librarian keeping our book shelves replenished.

We welcome more books! We’ve only limited space, so if we don’t have room to display or store any of them, we’ll pass them on to other local charities. Or donate to the Little Free Libraries that are book cabinets, found in the front gardens of local residents. Or we’ll sell the books to raise valuable funds.

To contact the honesty library please email books@themill-coppermill.org

Why not join The Mill Book club?  It runs every monthly and welcomes new contributors.

I always feel welcome at the Mill. Love the honesty library and the knitwear on sale.
