Generous donation boosts library stock

Collecting and sorting a donation of more than 2,000 books took some hard work, but a team of volunteers from Castle Donington Community Library completed the challenge with ease.  For more information click here.

Castle Donington Community Library has just received a donation of 2000 books. The haul is a gift from Ibstock Community College and a team of volunteers from Donington travelled in six cars to collect them. A second team at the library were on hand to sort and store the books away.

The books were all in very good condition and are exactly the kind of read our members like to borrow.  At least 700 were large print, which will boost the existing Donington stock.

Library management committee chair Chris Hills said: “We are extremely grateful to Ibstock Community College for this donation, which will bring a welcome increase to Donington’s book stock. I’d also like to say thanks to all the volunteers who turned out, and worked so hard, to fetch and sort the new books.”
