Tea Room Library

The library in the Tea Room is one part of the total library the village offers to its users, with the other half being held in the Church of St Peter and St Paul. The library in the Tea Room is very popular and consisting predominantly of novels, including the most popular themes and authors.

The library service is free, so please borrow any book you wish to read, take it home and only return it when you have finished the book, there is no time limit. We do however ask readers to borrow one book at a time, to keep the choice has high as possible for everyone.

The books are sourced from the hundreds that are given to the village every year. Those not used in the library are put up for sale at the Cattistock Village Fete, with any surplus being given to the Weldmar Hospicecare Trust.

The village library is for everyone, so please use it and enjoy it.
