Steve Sharp, Chairman of the Community Library Board of Trustees, is pleased to announce that Ali Gilbert has been officially appointed as manager of the Haddenham Community Library with effect from 15th April 2019.
As the post is employed by Bucks County Council, it was advertised across the county and two good candidates were interviewed. Ali was unanimously the choice of the panel.
As many library users will be aware, the former manager Emma Foster had to take time off for illness from May 2018 and wasn't able to return to work — she formally resigned from the end of October.
Ali carried out the manager's role all through, to the full satisfaction of the trustees and she led the volunteers extremely well.
She is now helping the trustees to develop a strategic plan for the future.
The featured photograph shows Ali playing a very active part in engaging children from the Community Infant School during their recent visit to the library on World Book Day.
