Last month saw the first Meeting of the recently transferred Clayton Community Managed Library’s new Steering Group. 8 volunteers who want to take a more active role in the management of the library attended the meeting. These volunteers will work alongside the partnership organisation who manage the library, Business Enterprise Support, to develop services in the library and ensure its smooth management.
During the meeting we discussed many things, from displays that could be done in the library to the creation of a Health and Safety team.
It is great to see volunteers from the surrounding community taking an active role in the management of their Community Managed Library, as it shows the amount of community interest in the library through the volunteers from that community.
