Library Update

HCL Volunteers

Our library became 'Haddenham Community Library' in November last year, and has been flourishing under the new arrangements. We have excellent staff, led by Emma Barrett, and some wonderful volunteers who give their valuable time each week.

The future is bright, with increased numbers of members and more activities involving the community, from the very young to the more mature, but we do need continuing funds from local organisations and companies. If you have networks in the local business community which we could contact, please let
the chairman know (see details below).

We have developed an 'honours board' in the library entrance which acknowledges the support local businesses and individuals have given ( and we hope this will continue).

I am pleased to invite local residents and users of the library to our first AGM, which is scheduled to take place on Friday 30th August, at 7.30pm. And the location? In the library! We hope that many folk will wish to hear about how our new structure as a charity and company limited by guarantee is operating, and to learn of the wide range of services we now have on offer.

Light Refreshments will be served (hence, it would be helpful if you could email the chairman, Stephen Sharp at stephsharp@aol.com to confirm your attendance).
