About


The Old Library is a place for all of us, for the community, by the community.

The Old Library is a volunteer run & maintained community hub in the heart of the South Lockleaze & Purdown neighbourhood.

We’re open as a public space on Wednesdays (10-4pm) & Fridays and Saturdays (10-2pm) providing access to IT, books, cafe and social spaces. We have regular events during the week, and one off events (all of which can be found on our calendar and social media).

We offer activities, events and private hire spaces. The Old Library can be a social space, a skills sharing platform, and a place that is based on giving and receiving. With an affordable cafe, kids’ space and lounge, we try to be a community space that works for everyone. Whether you love making, baking or creating, The Old Library is here for you.
