Boroughbridge Community Library and Resource Centre

On April 1, a new era starts in Boroughbridge with respect to the library. From that date the library will be entirely staffed by volunteers who have been in training for many months and are now raring to go! Trustees (“committee”) are: Judith Burton, Helen Chester, Mike Collins, John Helliwell, Ian Hick, Nic Holmes and Barbara Horner, all of us working in partnership with NYCC who will continue to provide books, computers and some professional support.

Please note that the opening hours will be more or less the same as now; and we’ll be open every day except Sunday.

We have around 30 volunteers but are always on the look-out for more. How about getting involved? A job which would suit you can be found, without doubt!

Our aspiration is to make the library a community hub: a place where all sorts of interesting things happen and exciting events take place. This will take time but, if you have any ideas for activities and events, we’d love to hear from you; Barbara Horner is the person to contact (contact details through John).

Finally, we must mention the Jubilee Room upstairs in the library building. It’s an attractive room for hire at very good rates and can be booked at 1 Hall Square.

For further details, or to find out about volunteering in the library, please contact: John Helliwell, 01423 320731, johnhelliwell604@gmail.com
