The Thursford Biography Library
Your chance to borrow books you've always wanted to read, about the people who you'd love to know more about.

We are really fortunate to have a collection of biographies in Thursford that is available for loan to anyone who lives in the village. The collection, owned by Stephen Noakes, has taken years to bring together and now consists of over 1,000, many of them almost impossible to find elsewhere.
