Volunteer run community library in Sully marks on year anniversary

The Sully and Lavernock community-run library celebrated one year with a special guest appearance.

Supported by the Vale of Glamorgan’s Library and Information Service, members and volunteers held a craft and storytelling session on Saturday 2 September.

American author Kyra Kramer, who now lives in Sully, gave a brief overview of her historical books on Henry VIII and mis-represented Queens, as well as her book titled “Mansfield Parsonage” in celebration of the 200th anniversary of the death of Jane Austen.

The Sully and Lavernock community run library was the first of the five planned library handovers from the Vale of Glamorgan Council.

Since May 2015, the Vale of Glamorgan Council worked with community groups across the county to help libraries in Dinas Powys, Sully, Wenvoe, St Athan and Rhoose to stay open.

To volunteer at the library, you can call 02920 531267 or send an email.
