Sonning Common Library

The Library Service is currently closed

Library news September to November 2020

When will the library be reopening? At time of writing we don’t have that date yet but please be assured that the library service and FoSCL are working hard to make sure that it will be as soon as possible. The safety of our customers and staff is our main priority. Larger libraries in Oxfordshire have already reopened, including Henley, so if you’re desperate for books, go there!

This year’s Summer Reading Challenge, ‘Silly Squad’, is online, for obvious reasons. If you haven’t done so already , parents and carers can sign their children up to the challenge at

On the website, children have been able to set their own personal reading challenge for the summer and keep track of the books they have read. They can read books from home or eBooks/eAudio borrowed from the Oxfordshire Libraries e-lending platforms. As they read, they have been collecting virtual rewards. The challenge will continue until the end of September so maybe the participants will be able to collect some real rewards too from Sonning Common Library…
