Community librarian Elena Parkin with Mr Bell signing the memory book.

The library at Hunstanton celebrated its golden anniversary with a special day on Monday.

The library commemorated 50 years with a coffee morning.

People from the town were invited to visit and enjoy the refreshments and share some of their experiences of the library in a special memory book.

Former librarian David Bell, of Ingoldisthorpe, was the guest speaker and he reflected on his time at the library,  where he worked from 1976 for more than 20 years.

The celebrations were also attended by current and former members of staff, including the some who worked at the library when it first opened in 1964.

Richard Bird, Norfolk county councillor for the north coast division, also gave a speech.

The town’s first library was based at the Sandringham Hotel but was moved across to the newly-built location at Westgate Gardens in 1964 before the hotel was demolished in 1967.

Now the library has the usual books as well as e-books and magazines, DVDs, console games and CDs to borrow.
