There are over 4,000 shops and sites on board ready to make a donation – including eBay, Argos, John Lewis, ASOS, Booking.com and M&S – and it won’t cost you a penny extra to help us raise funds.

All you need to do is:

3.  After you’ve checked out, the retailer will make a donation to Rhoose Community Library at no extra cost to you whatsoever!

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.
