Ratby Library By Ratby Library

Ratby Community Library needs help fundraising to renovate and rejuvenate their space, creating opportunities and fundamentally keep it running for future generations.

Ratby Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

Ratby Community Library is a charity, volunteer-run library, cafe and community hub. We are completely self sustained, with our biggest income being the cafe. We have different support groups through the week ranging from a craft evening and bingo nights to 0-5 year old baby and parent groups. We need your help to keep the library and community hub going!

What we'll deliver:

  • Improve the café services
  • Renovate the outdoor space
  • Create better opportunities for the community
  • Continue serving Ratby and the surrounding villages

Why it's a great idea:

We are the heart of the village, creating a safe space for all ages. We benefit the entire community. If we don’t fundraise enough money to keep ourselves going, this space will be lost.

Steps to get it done:

  • Raise enough money to keep the library open into 2023!
