Stoke Gifford Community Library

Community libraries are run by local voluntary groups with the support of South Gloucestershire Council who provide stock and advice.

They are linked to the library network which means you can use the South Gloucestershire library membership card to access these services.


A community library is situated on the mezzanine above the Old School Rooms Coffee Shop, and is open on the following dates:

Tuesdays fortnightly 2pm to 4pm. 

24 October

7 November

21 November

5 December

19 December


What’s available?

A changing collection of adults and children’s books, large print, spoken word and DVDs.

Full reservation and collection facilities are available – so if there’s something you’d like to read that isn’t in stock, then you can order it in!


Light Party

Each year we hold a light party on 31st October, for children to have fun together and celebrate light instead of darkness. 

We’re excited to  be running two parties this year for different ages. Both in the Old School Rooms.

Reception and KS1  –  3.45pm to 5.15pm

KS2  –  5.30pm to 7.00pm
