Library Manager

Users of the Haddenham Community Library will see a new face in the library as from Tuesday October 20th when Ms Sarah Whitmore takes up her post as library manager.

The previous manager resigned whilst the library was in lockdown to take up a position at another library in Buckinghamshire.

Sarah, whose background is in catering and has worked in community based volunteer staffed projects in Buckinghamshire, is passionate about books and the importance of reading. Having recently completed a BA in Creative Writing she is thoroughly looking forward to working in a 'book environment'.

She joins the library at a very critical time as it strives to adapt and reconfigure its services due to the coronavirus restrictions. Sarah enjoys a challenge and working collaboratively with other people.

The Library Trustees and volunteers are looking forward to working with her to provide the local community with a library they can be proud of and continue to enjoy despite the very challenging times we are all living through. There are lots of ways the library can do things differently and with Sarah's appointment this will get underway.

Chair of Library Trustees
