The Community Library Manager Appeal

With approximately 20,000 visitors a year we are a a valuable community resource. As a venue for Community Playlink’s Toy Library we provide a lifeline to many local families. Our regular Rhyme Time and Story Time activities are attended by dozens of children, and we know from many personal conversations what a difference the library service makes.

But we want to do more. In order to keep the library sustainable into the long-term, we hope to appoint a part-time Community Library Manager. Having researched how other community libraries operate, we are seeking to find funds for a person who can co-ordinate and train our volunteers, and expand our activities programme.

We anticipate costs of £35,000 for the first 3 years.
