Thursday 28th March 2019

We will reopen as normal on Friday 29th March at 1pm

Countdown: 3 weeks to Launch weekend 6th/7th April

Earlsdon library faces a very real threat of closure, only by working together can we keep it safe

Welcome to the Earlsdon Carnegie Community Library (ECCL). Currently managed in collaboration with Coventry City Council, we hope to be fully community led by April 2019. Our one remaining paid librarian will leave her post at the end of March: she has been invaluable in offering training, guidance and support to our band of volunteers; working with us to ensure the continued smooth running of the library.

We have something for everyone. A chance to join in a French or Spanish conversation class, read a local paper, plug in your laptop or use one of our twelve desktop computers. We offer printing and photocopying services at a reasonable cost. Coming months will see a range of planned events to encourage community participation. We also have a stock request service, able to reserve books from other libraries for a small fee. There is a range of large print and talking books for the visually impaired.

The book stock will remain in Council ownership, but will not have new titles added. Your donations have led to a very successful bookshop which is vital to raising funds, but which will also need to enhance the range of books we can offer to borrowers: in particular popular fiction so please……..


Get in touch if you would like us to collect your books.

Visit our bookshop and pick up a bargain. Wide range of fiction and non-fiction.

We are fortunate to have a large children’s library with everything from early board books for beginners to a non fiction range which feeds into  curriculum needs of local schools.

It’s a perfect setting for children to begin their reading experience; much loved and well used by carers and children alike.

Membership is free and open to everyone. All you need to join the library is ID and proof of address -and you can use your library ticket in any Coventry library.
