The Mercury Library and Community Hub is now open.
Due to Covid19 our new community building in Hamble-le-Rice is currently only open on Tuesdays and Saturdays only between 10am and 2pm.
The library has over 1,500 books to borrow, four public access computers, a copier/printer, comfy seats and tea and coffee. Come and pay us a visit and receive a warm welcome from our band of lovely volunteers.
The library can also be hired by community groups, clubs, businesses and individuals for social events, classes or meetings. The large, bright, flexible space can be configured to suit your requirements with a maximum capacity of 60 people. There is a meeting room, seating up to eight people making it ideal for small meetings, interviews or quiet working. It has all the facilities you might need including WiFi, projector and screen. There is a small kitchen for the preparation of refreshment with clean modern facilities. The large patio doors lead to a pleasant, no smoking, patio area.
Hire charges are:
Library area £15 per hour (available to hire from 1pm except Wednesdays)
Meeting room £10 per hour (available to hire from 10am and will be unavailable if the library is hired out).
