New library will lend books, CDs... and tools!

First published in News

A book lending library with a green fingered twist has opened for the residents of the Greatwood and Horse Close housing estates in Skipton.

Not only can residents borrow books, CDs and computer games – but they can also take out a lawnmower or a number of other garden tools.

The opening, at Greatwood and Horse Close Community Centre, was attended by several residents, the police and councillors.

And it was opened by Pat Haygarth, chairman of the residents’ association.

“I am so pleased to see members of the community coming together to create fantastic community resources,” said Yorkshire Housing’s community development advisor Caroline Leiper.
