Perhaps you would make a good one?

In November, Haddenham Library will become a partnership between the County Council, Parish Council and Haddenham Community Library. Haddenham Community Library (HCL) is a newly established charity and company limited by guarantee, run by local people and chaired by Steve Sharp.

The library opening hours will be unchanged. The HCL vision is to build on the ways in which the library contributes to the wider community.

The County Council will employ a manager and an assistant, seconded to HCL. They will be supported by local volunteers, typically working a session a week. Volunteers will receive training in the library role and always have a member of staff on duty to guide and support.

HCL now has a good number of willing volunteers from Haddenham, Stone, Cuddington and Dinton, but would welcome more — to help spread the load and cover for individual diary challenges. They Library folk are particularly keen to hear from library users with families, although they recognise and appreciate the many commitments of family life. Links with the village primary schools are important and will be strengthened.

If you would be interested to explore this possibility, please contact Steve Sharp at stephsharp@aol.com. He will be able to explain the role in more detail.

In the meantime, please do continue using all the facilities of the excellent library!
