Children’s Mini Christmas Tree Competition 2017

The mini trees are now available in the library for this popular event open to children of all ages.

To buy a mini tree and enter costs £2.50, if you can re-use last years’ tree the entrance is 50p.

Take your tree home, choose a theme of your own, for example a favourite book, hobby or colour scheme and return it to the library by Tuesday 5th December in time to go on display in the library during The Tree Festival.

Please don’t use electric lights or food items on your tree.



The updated Brighstone Village book is on sale in the Library for £12.00. Its a very good read and highly recommended.

We also stock the Brighstone Roll of Honour booklet, which gives details of all the heroes from Brighstone in WWI for £5.00.

Both make ideal gifts or souvenirs.



There are several folders holding information about events and services happening in Brighstone and across the Island, as well as helpful leaflets if you need assistance on a variety of topics.

Don’t forget you can now also download e-books and e-magazines via the IOW Library service website – pop in for details.  If you have a tablet, this is a great way to download items to take on the move. 

We also hold jigsaw puzzles to borrow free of charge, or to buy for £1.50.

We are always happy for your donations of any unwanted good quality paperbacks. The sale of these helps enormously with keeping up our funds.


Wi-Fi is available so feel free to bring your own devices to wirelessly connect to the Internet.


There are knitting patterns in the library if you would like to participate in knitting for the Seafarers Mission. Imagine getting on a ship in summer in the Philippines, dressed in shorts and t-shirts.  You might find yourself transiting freezing Arctic waters with only your overalls to keep you warm. The Seafarers Mission distribute warm items to help out in this situation. Linda East is the liaison for the knitting.


Green garden bags at £1.30 each are also available.

Health Walks fortnightly. 1.30pm start from the Library.
