FOLIO Sutton Coldfield

FOLIO Sutton Coldfield is community group of Sutton Coldfield residents who want to see our public libraries not just survive, but thrive at the heart of our community.

We work towards this by:

(a) Supporting and promoting the current library service in Sutton Coldfield;

In the past we've run messy play sessions, local flora talks, reminiscence events, author visits, genealogy help desks, code club, writing workshops and more.

We hope that we are able to offer activities and events for all Sutton Coldfield residents and would be particularly interested in hearing from home educators and their children about what activities and events you would like in Sutton Coldfield library.
