Puddletown Community Library

Puddletown Community Library was opened at 3pm on Monday 7th January 2013, by internationally acclaimed BBC journalist Kate Adie. 


Visiting the Library is free and open to everyone who lives, works or studies in Dorset.


Puddletown Library is run by volunteers and is totally dependent on fund-raising and donations. The Friends of Puddletown Library (FoPL) is a registered charity that works hard at fund-raising to keep the Puddletown Comunity library open, to provide a service which reflects the needs of the local community, to promote literacy generally and to be a welcoming place in the Community.
