On Thursday 29th July, the library celebrated its 50th anniversary organised by The Friends of St Just Library, with storytelling for children with John Brolly, a display of St Just memorabilia from 1971 or thereabouts, books published from 1971 available for loan, a vintage book sale, and a wonderful library shaped celebration cake, big enough to feed everyone!
It was a wonderful afternoon, with librarians past and present amongst those in attendance, all ages enjoying celebrating our wonderful library. Many thanks to St Just Town Council, who now run the library, the library staff and to everyone involved in making sure this valuable community resource is there for the next 50 years.
