Did you know that the County Council library visits the Rede Valley and stops at Elsdon?

Please see attached timetable when it visits and the place / time it stops.  Unfortunately not many people seem to know about the service and if not used it there is a risk it will be lost.

If you are not a member yet then consider the benefits to you and your family by joining. Please also see the link below that details the services provided.
