Meeting for library volunteers

VOLUNTEERS interested in supporting Sonning Common library are being invited to a meeting next week.

The Grove Road library will have its staff funding from Oxfordshire County Council reduced from April next year.

The role of library manager will continue to be funded and a member of staff will be on duty when the library is open but volunteers are needed to support the staff and maintain the current service and opening hours.

Ros Varnes, chairman of the Friends of Sonning Common Library, said: “We know how much residents cherish the village library from the strength of feeling there was when it was threatened with closure.

“Although it is difficult to accept cuts to the service, the changes ahead bring opportunities for residents to get more involved with shaping the local library service.
