STAFF and customers joined in celebration to mark a milestone moment at Tadley library.

On Saturday, guests were invited along to the Mulfords Hill venue to mark 25 years since it opened its doors.

There was a storytime session, technology drop-in slots and a willow workshop for all those who attended the event.

Tadley Library is proud to have a particularly popular Construction Club – a weekly chance for children aged three years and over to learn how to build fun shapes with coloured plastic bricks.

Executive member for recreation and heritage at Hampshire County Council, which runs the library, Councillor Seán Woodward, said: “Tadley Library has been a highly regarded fixture of the local community since its arrival in 1994.

"In that time, the library has evolved and modernised, with facilities including WIFI, self-service kiosks and a range of clubs being thoroughly enjoyed.

"It is great to see customers of all ages getting the very most out of the library, particularly our younger residents who are developing their literacy and learning through fun and creativity."

This celebration follows a refurbishment of the facility at the end of last year.

Cllr Woodward added: "Congratulations to all of Tadley’s staff and volunteers who have each played a role in this milestone.”

As well as being a venue for learning and reading, there is also a range of events to participate in at the library, including a weekly U3A Family History Computer Club; a Saturday Storytime and Craft session; a weekly Knit and Knatter group.

Customers can enjoy a range of book borrowing formats – traditional hardbacks and paperbacks, but also e-books and audiobooks through the Borrowbox app.
