Weston Community Library

Working alongside Southampton Library Services, the YMCA Community Library opened in July 2016 offering valuable library services to the local community from a brand new building.

As well as the library functions, a host of community services will be offered by the YMCA from the building in the near future. Current services from the library include:

  • Sign up or re-join the library to access hundreds of titles
  • Return & take out books
  • Book reservations
  • Computer use at 4 new PCs – search for that perfect job, browse online
  • Printing & scanning

Books available include:

  • Children’s fiction and non fiction
  • Adult fiction and non fiction
