The official launch of Shenstone Community Managed Library took place on Saturday June 17th 2017, with over 100 people attending. Volunteers from the Library Community Group were joined by library staff and members of the local community, with special guests including author Fiona Joseph and MP Christopher Pincher. The event not only marked the re-launch of the library, but also the opening of the new library café. It was a great day.
The hard work of the community group who have taking over the running of the library has been rewarded with this wonderful launch event. Many of those present commented on the atmosphere of the venue as a real ‘Community Library’ and the engagement of local people was inspiring.
