Friends of Marsden Library

Friends of Marsden Library is a community organisation which supports Marsden Library.

We welcome friendship from all parts of Marsden, and from anyone who might not be lucky enough to live here but who loves Marsden like we do and wants to contribute to the quality of our community.

We are committed to the view that Libraries are not a luxury, but rather an essential part of our community. Losing our library would reduce the quality of life and well-being of the people who live here, and close down the resources and opportunities that our population, young and old, need to develop, grow and live well.

We are determined to do all we can to prevent this so we have summed up our purpose as ‘Keeping Marsden Library Open
