Paulton Library


Paulton Library

Paulton Library reopened in September 2020 as a Community Library. It is staffed by a team of Volunteer Library Assistants under the management of Paulton Parish Council. The Library remains part of Bath and North East Somerset Library Service and continues to have access to all services and books in the Libraries West Group. 


Our new long awaited Children’s Picture Book shelves are now in place as are a number of adjustments to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable visit. 

Latest News

New Books 10/6/21
We have just received a delivery of over 100 “Reading Well” books. These books help to support people to understand and manage their health and wellbeing using helpful reading. They are all chosen and recommended by health experts, as well as people with lived experience of the conditions and topics covered, along with their relatives and carers.
Reading Well books are not only helpful for adults and young people who may have mental health issues but also to educate us all so that we can better recognise signs and symptoms. Greater understanding will lead to the confidence to help and support sympathetically and positively.


Thanks to the commitment of our Volunteers we are now able to open on SATURDAYS as well!
