Project Description

Stoneleigh library celebrated its 50th anniversary with tea and cake.

Officially opened on April 23, 1966, by the then-mayor or Epsom and Ewell and on Saturday, the Friends of Stoneleigh Library held a 50th birthday party. An exhibition chronicling the history of the area was on display, including photos from the library’s opening in 1966.

Chris presented the library with a framed aerial photograph of Stoneleigh and tea and cake were served.

Friends of Stoneleigh Library manage the day-to-day running, while a librarian from the county council handles its administration. The library teaches the history of Stoneleigh to Year 6 pupils from Meadow Primary School, offers work experience to Nescot College students, and offers a place for people to meet.
