The Mercury Library and Community Hub is now available for public hire. Our brand new community building in Hamble-le-Rice is being run by volunteers and managed by Hamble Parish Council. The library is coming soon, but this flexible space can now be hired by community groups, clubs, businesses and individuals for social events, classes or meetings.
The large, bright, flexible space can be configured to suit your requirements with a maximum capacity of 60 people. There is a separate meeting room, seating up to eight people making it ideal for meetings, interviews or quiet working. It has all the facilities you might need including WiFi, projector and screen. There is a small kitchen for the preparation of refreshment with clean modern facilities. The large patio doors lead to a pleasant, no smoking, patio area.
Hire charges are:
- Library area £15 per hour (available to hire from 1pm)
- Meeting room £10 per hour (available to hire from 10am and will be unavailable if the library is hired out).
Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us on 023 8045 3422.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Mercury Library and Community Hub.
