THE LIBRARY CAMPAIGN AND FRIENDS OF LIBRARIES – HOW CAN WE WORK TOGETHER?

ZOOM MEETING WEDNESDAY 14 APRIL 2021 @ 19:30-21:00

Libraries need Friends, in good times and in bad.  Now more than ever.

But what do Friends need? Can local groups benefit by exchanging ideas and support?

The Library Campaign wants to find out. As a national organisation we could be a central contact to save groups from re-inventing the wheel, and spread encouragement and inspiration.

At The Library Campaign we are constantly impressed by the creativity, skills and sheer cleverness shown by Friends groups – whether they are supporting a relatively stable service or fighting cuts in full campaigning mode.

Activities – and campaigns – are very local affairs. They build on local resources, local tastes, local facts. But they also develop great ideas, arguments, insights, artwork, leaflets and posters, quotes, contacts… and much more.

The Library Campaign is holding a Zoom meeting to discuss how all could benefit by sharing some of these. We have our ideas. Now we’d like to hear yours!

Come to listen – Come to brainstorm – Come to share. There will be plenty of time for discussion. 

                                          SPEAKERS:

  • Laura Swaffield – Chair of The Library Campaign
  • Andrew Coburn – Treasurer of The Library Campaign
  • Elizabeth Ash – Save Croydon Libraries
  • Liz Miles – Save Our Libraries Essex (SOLE)
  • Glyn Robbins – Save Our Libraries Tower Hamlets
