Read the Runes!

Drop by the library in May to be spellbound by our special display of books for adults and children on the theme of Folklore and Legend. No dragons have been harmed whilst putting the displays together. Swords, amulets and familiars must be left at the desk.

Telling Tales all Summer

As part of the library’s 101 Stories community project, we’re offering everyone the chance to drop by the library and sit and enjoy a coffee whilst telling us a tale or two.

We all love to reminisce and share stories about our lives and experiences. Take the weight off sitting on the comfy sofas in the library, have a free coffee and give us a yarn.

Everyone is welcome at our four sessions which each run from 10am until Noon on:

Wednesday 31st May

Wednesday 21st June

Wednesday 19th July

Wednesday 23rd August

Pick up a Bargain

For the next few weeks – and in fine weather only – keep an eye out for our used book sale trolley outside the library entrance. You’re sure to be able to pick up a bargain or two and we’ll be refreshing the stock regularly.

All proceeds in aid of community library funds.

New Art at the Library

The latest art mini-exhibition is running at the community library – a mixed media art project inspired by the work of artists Henri Matisse and Elaine Hughes.

The artists are all local, very young and very talented. Stand proudly by your easels pupils in Years 1 and 2 at our own Easingwold Community Primary School.

As part of this project, the children have been learning about Easingwold, and looking closely at the local architecture. They created sketches and experimented with a range of drawing techniques and media. This included the use of collage work and layering to give depth and perspective to their pictures. The resulting mixed media collages of Easingwold show the children’s wonderful artistic talent.

The exhibition runs until June.

101 Stories is live!


101 Stories is a new and exciting community project being run by the library. It aims to collect true-life stories from the people of Easingwold and the surrounding area.

Everyone has a story to tell, be it a funny or touching reminiscence, an influential memory or a life-affirming experience. Storytelling brings us together and gives us a glimpse of places and people beyond our usual circle.

Your story doesn’t have to be about living in the area – it could be from a million miles away. It just has to be a story about you and could be an A4 page or just a paragraph – the choice is yours.

Suitably anonymised, your stories will feature in displays and artistic performance during 2023, culminating in a book.

You’ll find full information about 101 Stories on the project’s webpage

You can also visit the main project display in the library entrance and pick up a leaflet telling you all you need to know about taking part.
