Running your community library

Community Management Library committees manage the day to day delivery of the library. In return the county council:

  • continues to cover all utility and maintenance costs (up to an agreed amount based on past usage)

  • support them with a comprehensive training course which has been developed with our existing community managed libraries. This includes:

    • premises management

    • health and safety

    • information governance and data protection

    • publicity

    • recruitment of volunteers

    • development of committee skills and structures.

  • provides ongoing support - the chosen organisations have strategic and practical support throughout this process and in the early days of ‘going live’ by a paid member of staff from the Libraries and Arts Service Community Capacity Team.
