Village Book Drop

 

 Don't forget our landmark telephone box "book drop" and library.  Regrettably, we all have more time than we anticipated for our leisure pursuits, including reading.   Pop in to either pick up any of the wide choice of books that other villagers have donated.  Or, if you have any books that you have possibly finished with, then donations to the library are also welcome. Obviously, make sure you maintain reasonable hygiene rulings by keeping hands well washed before and after pickups or drops.
