The Fleckney Library reopened as a Community Library in March 2016.
The Kibworth and Fleckney Rotary Club was so impressed with Linda Marshall and her fellow trustees, who had worked tirelessly to keep the Library going, that it wanted to help in some way.
In the last two years the Rotary Club have raised funds locally and applied for a Rotary District Matching Grant. In total they raised £2,300. The money donated to the library, enabled the new Community Library to purchase 4 armchairs, 2 settees and two coffee tables. The chairs arrived at the end of 2017.
This now provides a relaxing area for visitors to read in a comfy chair with a hot drink by their side (now also available in the Library). More information can be found on their website www.fleckneycommunitylibrary.co.uk.
