Getting the most from books as a family

I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library…

These are the new web pages for the Community Library at Marham designed to stimulate your interest in good writing and to help the imaginations of the younger members of our community to grow.

Whether you like new fiction, old favourites or your children are passionate about great stories, meeting authors or finding new picture books – we will feature them all here on our pages.

We will have our regular features too. Sam’s Selection – what’s interesting at the moment in our library. Our featured author post, as well as news of library events around and about in the County.

Of course, we won’t forget parent and carer reading and intend to feature some great web links to help you and your family become a ‘reading family’ too.

We are moving some of our furniture and books to make for a more accessible space in the library. Watch these pages for news of new projects and events around books and family reading.

See you in the library…
