Library Sub-Committee of LGPC
The Leintwardine Group Parish Council took over responsibility for rent and electricity costs of the library from April 2014, saving it from closure. The library is now staffed by volunteers. The Parish Council set up a sub-committee to oversee the day-to-day running of the library, and plan for the future.

Library Sub-Committee
Chair
– Councillor Emma Gorbutt
Secretary – Mark Ferrero
Volunteers Co-ordinator – Annette Judges

Strategic Plan
Leintwardine Group Parish Council has taken an important step to secure a great future for our local library by setting out an ambitious three-year strategic plan. You can view the full document by clicking on the link below. Local groups and organisations have been consulted, and warmly welcome the plan. Their responses are included in full at the end of the document.

The plan sets out the how the library will develop in future, reaching out to new sections of the community, and working more closely with local people on designing the services it delivers. New partnerships are already being forged on this positive footing. Here are some of the things we have already done:

  • Run a successful pilot of mother and toddler sessions
  • Held an author event
  • Piloted new opening hours (for example on 1st Saturdays)
  • Set up a “Friends of Leintwardine Community Library” society
