Buxhall Bee Library / Book Swap


The Buxhall Bee Library is now open!

Following a suggestion from a Buxhall resident, Lucy Harrison has created a library / book swap in the Community Room,
Block 16-23 Buxhall Crescent.

A good selection of books is now in the community room, including fiction by Julian Barnes, Mikhail Bulgakov, Donna Leon, Armistead Maupin, Ian Rankin, John Steinbeck, as well as non-fiction, cookery and DIY books.

Residents can come at the following times (or by appointment) to swap their own books that they no longer want. The only rule is that some kind of reading material must be left in exchange for the one you are taking. If you have any books you’re getting rid of, why not bring them down and let your neighbours share them?

NB: the Library does not yet stock children’s books, donations are welcome.

Library opening times*

Wednesdays, 5-6pm
Saturdays, 3-4pm

*closed on Wednesday 20th January and Saturday 20th February

To access the room from outside, knock on the door of block 16-23 or on the window to the left of the door.

If you want to check Lucy is on her way to open the library, call 07964 878315 or email
