We are home to Cumbria County Council Library Link, Shap Pre-School Playgroup and provide a Visitor Information Point for Eden District Tourism.  We are working hard to bring other services to the community.  We have a variety of rooms available for hire. We host art exhibitions and have space available for other displays. The building has WiFi access, computers and telephone for public use and also printing/photocopying facilities.  A growing number of groups meet here regularly – check out the information on this website, we hope you will find it interesting and helpful.
