Service(s): Community services
Review(s): Library service
Asset interested in: Moretonhampstead Library
Service interested in: Yes
Proposal Details: We have developed several options for community involvement with the Library, of which two would involve us taking on a long lease or ownership of either the whole building, or just the part occupied by the library (the ground floor). These would involve active letting of the building (in the case of one option) and local fundraising (in the case of the other); both supported by volunteer time in some supportive library roles. They would also involve us taking responsibility for delivering the library service ourselves, with County Council support and probably with the existing librarian.
