Derwent Valley BRIDGE Community Library

 

 

More than just books…

In 2011, residents of East and West Ayton and nearby villages in the Derwent Valley converted the energy generated by an unsuccessful campaign to save the local library from closure into a positive project to deliver and run their own community resource.

Derwent Valley BRIDGE opened its doors in May 2012 and continues today as a valuable village asset as a result of this vision and commitment. It has developed in line with its name, the BRIDGE, which stands for BOOKS, RESOURCES, INFORMATION, DIVERSITY, GROUPS, EDUCATION and chosen for its proximity to the historic bridge linking the villages.

The BRIDGE is operated entirely by volunteers and offers more than just books! Take a closer look at what we do or, even better, come and join us as a borrower, friend or volunteer….

We look forward to welcoming you!
