If so, why not offer your time, energy and skills to your local community library as a Trustee?

As a registered charity and company limited by guarantee, Haddenham Community Library has a Board of Trustees/Directors who are responsible for the management, well-being and effectiveness of the Library.

Our aims include raising the library's profile, better targeted service to the local community, increased participation in cultural and entertainment activities and growing our income especially through sponsorship and donations. We would particularly welcome enquiries from those with a legal or property management background, but enthusiasm is the most attractive qualification.

Haddenham Community Library since its inception in 2012 has worked in partnership with Buckinghamshire County Council to uphold and deliver the traditional role of a public library service. All its current trustees are passionate about its relevance and continuation. You would be joining a group of local people from all walks of life who are committed to ensuring that the library remains at the centre of the community providing a unique space for connecting and learning.

All trustees are expected to be willing to engage in a constructive and collaborative manner with all the challenges affecting the library and to act as an advocate in the wider world.

Your time commitment would be attendance at the six annual daytime library management meetings, some occasional meetings with other organisations and agencies and participation in trustee working groups. If appointed to the post you can expect to receive support and advice to assist you with your role.

If you would like to know more about Haddenham Community Library, its history and what we do, please visit our website at www.haddenhamcommunitylibrary.org

Job descriptions for this post are available from the Chair. Applicants should email expressions of interest and their CV to the Chair or if preferred, hard copies addressed to the Chair of HCL trustees can be handed in at the Library.
