Library Give Away

 The house at Hessle is considerably smaller and as a result the sisters will not be taking with them all the books in their library. The sisters have removed what books they are taking so the remainder are up for grabs to anyone who wants to give them a good home. There will not be any charge for the books although any donations will be gratefully received.


In the light of the Covid-19 pandemic, the sisters are being very careful about social distancing so if you wish to take a look at the books in the library you will need to book a slot to visit. Please do not turn up without a booking, you will be turned away.


2 hour slots, 10-12pm and 2-4pm will be available Tuesday to Saturday beginning on Wednesday 19th August 2020. More information will be given when a slot is booked.  See below for available dates.


NB. The following will apply to all visitors

Visits must be pre-booked. If visitors arrive without a booking they will be turned away.

Visitors will be asked to restrict themselves to the library. There will be a toilet available.

Visitors must use the cleanser provided and also wear disposable gloves at all times when handling the books.  (Both will be provided).

Tea/Coffee will be provided.

If visitors would like to meet up with a sister this must be outside with appropriate social distancing. Please speak with the welcomer when you arrive.

Visitors are welcome to use the gardens. Please be aware of social distancing if you meet any of the sisters.
