Support us

There are a number of ways that you can support us:

  • Like any organisation, we have general day to day running costs and you can help us with these by making a donation in cash, by cheque or by regular standing order. We’re a registered Charitable Incorporated Organisation so if you’re able to make your donation under Gift Aid then your donation will be even more valuable to us.
  • The library is run entirely by unpaid volunteers and you can give some of your time to help run the library in many different ways. You can also help with fundraising events – either helping run the events, or helping to organise them, or both!
  • You can also help us by donating your unwanted books.
  • Nominate Langney Community Library as your chosen charity on easyfundraising. Find out more at the easyfundraising logo below.
  • Nominate Langney Community Library as your chosen charity with Eastbourne Local Lottery via

Book donations

We will be happy to accept most books (and audio books) so long as they are in good condition, clean and undamaged and no missing pages (or CDs). Yellowing of pages may not be a problem – if in doubt about yellowing of pages, bring the book in and we’ll have a look.

Please note that we may have to suspend accepting book donations from time to time at short notice; this may be because we need time to process existing book donations and free up some space.

Please check with us before bringing in any donated books – otherwise you’ll have to take them back again or find an alternative place to take them.

Did you know that whenever you buy anything online – from your weekly shop to your annual holiday – you could be raising free donations for Langney Community Library with easyfundraising?

There are over 7,000 brands on board ready to make a donation – including eBay, Argos, John Lewis, ASOS, and M&S – and it won’t cost you a penny extra to help us raise funds.
