Our community library, run totally by volunteers, is open for a session every weekday and Saturday morning, please click here for full details of our opening times.
Hopefully the photos of the library above will give you our exact location behind the trees on Station Road close to the cross roads with Back Lane where the entrance to The Market Bosworth School is, and opposite the Bosworth Dental Practice. We now have a path installed direct from Station Road, although the disabled access remains from the first gate on Back Lane and around the side of the school. Unfortunately it has proved technically impossible to install a path that is fully compliant with the required levels.
The library is supported by and operates as part of the Leicestershire County Council Leisure & Community Libraries Service. Anyone wishing to borrow books becomes a member of that service and has access to the whole of their book stock, and all other services including their free internet provision with computers available for your use . Its really easy to join the Libraries Service, anyone including non residents can join and all you need is a form of identity. A free wi-
Market Bosworth Community Library (MBCL) also has a wide range of up to date books, CDs and DVDs for sale , all of which have been donated to us. The proceeds from these sales go towards running and developing the library. We also have a large range of greeting cards for sale some of which are hand crafted.
We now have a dedicated Tourist Information centre at the library for visitors alongside a range of community information boards and special displays by local groups.
As well as the more expected library services MBCL is developing a range of activities that take place within the library , please see our activities page for further details.
The library is also available to hire for meetings outside our library opening times. Following support from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Market Bosworth Festival the library has audio visual equipment installed which can be hired for events. We can currently seat eighty people, and the library also makes a very good venue for small group meetings. Full details of room hire are here.
