A new weekly pop-up library session is set to start up in a Suffolk village.

Suffolk Libraries are launching the debut session at the Beck Row Parish Hub, near Mildenhall, at 1pm on Tuesday, June 18.

The village is the fourth local session in the county with the model already successfully running in Shotley, Red Lodge and Rushmere.

It is being funded by Section 106 planner development money which is being made available via Suffolk County Council.

The sessions will run from 1pm to 3pm every week offering books and access to a computer, as well as a Tot Rock activity for children under five years old from 1.30pm to 2pm.

There will be a selection of books available to choose from every week and people can reserve any item from the Suffolk Libraries catalogue for free and pick it up at the session.

The parish hub has a large car park, toilet facilities and disabled access, and will be providing free refreshments during the library sessions.

Janine Woolston, Suffolk Libraries outreach manager said: “We’re delighted to be launching this new weekly session for the local community.

“Suffolk Libraries’ local pop-up library sessions have been a success elsewhere in the county and enable us to bring a slice of library life to local communities where there is not an existing library branch.

“We’d love to welcome the local community at the first session so they can see what’s on offer.

“The Parish Council have been very supportive while we have been planning this, for which we are very grateful.”
