FOSIL (Friends of St Ives Library)

The Friends of St Ives Library (FOSIL) was established in 1997 to mark the centenary of the library in the iconic Passmore Edwards building.
​In 1997 major events took place to mark the Library’s centenary which was followed by a recommendation to set up a Friends of St Ives Library group (FOSIL) using money raised at the centenary celebrations. It had been suggested that libraries across the county might start friends groups, but only St Ives Library, with the support of the Library Manager and staff, has remained in place.
