COMMUNITY volunteers still learning how best to run a library are to give residents an update on everything that has happened over the past year.

Swindon’s only community library trust is to hold its AGM next week, more than a year after it was formed by Councillor Dale Heenan and volunteers when Covingham Library and Liden Library were under threat of closure.

Coun Heenan, chairman of the trustees for Swindon Community Library Trust, said: “2017 was a tough year for all of Swindon’s community libraries. Several parish councils took over their local libraries and the library trust successfully saved Covingham Library and Liden Library from closing.”

He added: “Our AGM is open to all members of public to find out what has happened over the last year, and our plans for 2018.”

The meeting will take place at Covingham Library on Thursday, March 15 from 6pm.
