Ann Ramm, who has worked at the library for 21 years, said its success was down to the loyal support of its members.

She said: "We are extremely fortunate to have the 'Friends of Wells Library' who have supported the library for a number of years with events and raising much needed funds for us."

Other long-serving staff members include Bridget Hawes, who has been there for 28 years and Ann Small, who has done 27 years.

County councillor Marie Strong added: "The Friends' is a group of enthusiastic and hardworking volunteers determined to keep their library vibrant. Throughout the year the Friends organise many social and educational events, as well as children's activities. All money raised go towards enhancing a much loved and much used library."
