Dunchurch Community Library is supported by the Parish Council and the books are supplied by Warwickshire County Council Library service. However, all the running costs for the library have to be covered by fundraising events and voluntary donations.

If you have any fundraising ideas or would like to help with any of our events and activities please contact the library - see panel at side for details.

Here are some of the events we have held since we opened as a Community Library in April 2012.

2012 saw the Olympic torch relay in Dunchurch. The library kept the village warm with coffee and bacon butties.


Later that month when the Godiva Awakes parade passed through Dunchurch the library served coffee and homemade cakes to the spectators.
