Bawtry Community Library Receives Welcome Donation

10 June 2019

McCarthy and Stone, the developer behind the new William Bradford Court Retirement Living development on Tickhill Road, has donated £350 to Bawtry Community Library.

The library has used the funds from McCarthy and Stone to purchase a beech finish table, which will be centrally positioned in the library and used to display newspapers. Additionally, a five shelf bookcase has been purchased to display and organise the library’s ever-growing book collection.

Bawtry Community Library, situated just off of Doncaster Road, is a thriving and successful community venture offering the usual library services along with public computers and internet access, printing, photocopying, daily newspapers and a second hand book shop. It also hosts community groups and is a place for local people of all generations. The library is an important part of the neighbourhood providing support and helps to keep the local residents connected.

Anne Gray, a volunteer at the library and a member of the Board of Trustees, said: “We are very happy to receive the donation from McCarthy and Stone. As a small community library with a vast amount of visitors, all contributions given to us are greatly appreciated and used in the best way we see fit. We are looking forward to welcoming the retirees of William Bradford Court to the library and the area. Hopefully with this donation we can make their trips to the library even more enjoyable.”

Liz Green, Regional Sales and Marketing Director at McCarthy and Stone North East, commented: “We were delighted to be able to support the Bawtry Community Library with this donation. Community libraries are a place for everyone to enjoy, providing an escape from isolation and loneliness for many, no matter what age. A number of our homeowners often visit the library, which is just around the corner from the development, are excited to see the updated facilities but we hope the donation will go some way to helping attract new visitors as well.”
