Deborah Lamb – Library Manager at Old Town Library, Swindon – gives us a overview of their vibrant and inclusive Community Library.
The library has been running since 2017 and is a great example of a Community Library embracing and engaging with local users to cultivate a wonderful community space.
Their response during the months of forced closure in 2020 due to Covid, organising story walks and themed activities outside, was indicative of the need in the community for education, social interaction, learning and sharing.
They have gone from strength to strength over the past 6 years and are now looking forward to opening a brand new community managed library in Summer 2023.
