If the garden room is already well known to the inhabitants of Héauville (Manche) for its multiple functions, in recent weeks it has been enriched with a new dimension with the addition of a reading and sharing space around books.

In addition to continuing to offer a shared workspace (coworking) and a meeting room for associations, this modular and multi-service room now houses hundreds of varied books, suitable for all ages and tastes.

This project was made possible thanks to donations and an agreement with the Manche departmental library, which made it possible to fill the shelves with almost 900 books.

Committed volunteers

This collection is called to renew regularlywith the addition of new features.

Three passionate volunteers, Catherine, Juliette and Monique, took the reins of this new library.

For Catherine, a true book lover, it is almost a dream come true to give her time for a municipal library.

Moreover, the warm welcome from the volunteers and the brightness of the place leave no one indifferent. Already 41 people are registered and often visit this library. Volunteers also plan to organize workshops for children and adults.

A place of conviviality

There nursery, located on the ground floor, already often takes advantage of the library spaces. Access to the library is free and open to all readerseven to those who reside in other municipalities.

Each reader can borrow up to five documents for a period of four weeks.
