Harbury Village Library is light and spacious, thanks to its home in the village's original Victorian school. As a community library, it is associated with Warwickshire County Libraries, but is operated entirely by volunteers. This team of over 100, managed by a small Steering Committee, runs both the Library and its cafe, known as Biblio's. Their efforts keep the Library open as a thriving village hub from 9-5pm, Monday to Friday, and 10-12 noon Saturdays - longer opening times than many City libraries. Harbury Village Library has full access to County and National books, materials and wide-ranging online resources, as well as its own excellent book collection, and free online use of Ancestry and British Newspaper Archive. It offers a car park, free computers, free wi-fi, ongoing art exhibitions, regularly updated pop-up displays of local interest, Biblio's Cafe serving home-made cakes and coffee 9.15 - 12 noon Wednesday to Friday and 10 to 12 noon on Saturday, and tea or coffee on request when the cafe is not staffed.
The facility can be hired for suitable events outside Library opening hours. The cafe /work area is also available at certain times during Library hours. Successful past and current events include craft classes, computer skills workshops, meetings, tea parties, coffee mornings, antiques valuation evenings, book clubs, rehearsal space, and local author book signings. The library computers, wi-fi access and kitchen are available to hirers.
