Friends of Bedale Community Library (FoBCL) was launched in March 2017 with the main aim of raising funds for Bedale Community Library.  Friends make an annual donation of £15 or more. We hope to run events throughout the year.

By becoming a Friend, you will help to keep a library open in Bedale for the benefit of the communities of Bedale and the surrounding villages.

FoBCL is registered with Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) as a ‘small charity’ and can claim Gift Aid on your donations if applicable.

Susan Perkins (Chair)

Alan Shinkfield (Treasurer)

Elizabeth Bostock (Secretary)

Officers of FoBCL can be contacted on or write to them c/o Bedale Community Library, Bedale Hall, North End, Bedale, DL8 1AA.
