Two Great Cornard authors have been named as patrons of the village’s library.

Charlie Haylock, who has recently published Don’t Hurry Me ... I’m Suffolk and Rebecca Elliot, whose books include Zoo Girl, have agreed to take up the role.

Mr Haylock said he was keen to get more people using the library, which is based in the grounds of Thomas Gainsborough School.

“Like all Suffolk libraries, it is open to everyone and offers the full range of services,” he said.

“Culturally, we cannot afford to lose our libraries. They are essential for young and old alike, to expand their knowledge and their horizons. I want local people to have some get-up-and-go and explore what it has to offer.”

Kaisha Robertson, a library user, said the facility ran lots of events.

“It is a great library and I am proud to say I am part of it,” she said.

The library is holding an open day today offering people the chance to have a look around and find out more about joining the Friends of Great Cornard Library group.

Sessions will be held from 2.30pm to 3.30pm and from 6pm to 7pm.
