Chalvey Satellite Library is moving

Chalvey Satellite Library is moving to Chalvey Grove Children's Centre in March - look out for more details soon You may have heard but there are exciting developments happening in Chalvey. The site of the community centre on The Green is about to be rebuilt as an all through school - "The Grove" (currently hosted on Wellington Street at the former TVU site), which will also include a new revamped Community Centre.

While the building work occurs, Chalvey Satellite Library will move across to Chalvey Grove Children's Centre. We are just in the process of moving in and we'll let you know very soon when it will be open for visitors. Ask at your local library for updates.

You can also borrow and return your books at any library in Slough while you wait!
