Rhoose Community Library is a service run by community volunteers for people in Rhoose and neighbouring villages.  We are currently recruiting new volunteers and if you would like to help please call in to the library or contact us using this form
Alternatively visit Volunteering Wales for details of our volunteering opportunities and much more.
Our volunteers are the ‘life blood’ of the Library.
We are also most grateful to our sponsors, who’s details are here for the current year.

Please note the library is not run by the Vale of Glamorgan Council.  The building is leased by Rhoose Community Library which  is a registered charity 1166517 and is managed by a board of trustees (see below).  The Council do provide the book stock and some back-office services but the Library cannot survive without your help and support.

Because the library is a charity it is totally reliant on support from the community and local businesses.  Support is needed both in terms of funds and volunteer workers.
