Save your stamps for RNIB

This Christmas, collect stamps for RNIB and make a difference to blind and partially sighted people.

If you receive cards and letters through the post, could you save the stamps to send to us?

The RNIB recycle them into much-needed funds for their services,such as the Letter from Santa in accessible formats for children

with vision impairment to help them feel included at Christmas.


For those that don't know, we collect used postage stamps at the Library for the RNIB.
Just save a batch and drop them off in a bag through the letter box or at the counter when we finally reopen.
Please ensure that you leave a 1cm (1/2") border of the envelope around the stamp otherwise Angela gets grumpy.
Thank you.

A library for the community…


Bostall Library has been providing the community with a wealth of resources since 1939. Having undergone a modern refurbishment, we are now delighted to open our doors once again to the public.

With a strong community feel, Bostall Library is the home of book lovers, and our friendly staff and volunteers are always happy to help.

We have a large selection of books, journals and educational resources spanning a wide range of genres.

Computers are available to aid in your research, and our building has Wi-Fi access for those wishing to bring their own devices.

For those seeking to study, or who simply wish to escape the modern-day hustle and bustle, we offer a quiet zone.

Children are more than welcome in our library; we have a range of children’s novels and encourage reading at home from an early age. Please ask for more information about our child friendly activities, or click on the relevant tab above.
