In order to continue and further our campaigning for libraries, the current Trustees are seeking to enlist greater active support. 

Could you offer help with admin, membership, accounts, social media, website or help offer support to campaign groups,  on an ad hoc or a more regular basis?  

Are you interested in standing as a Trustee or taking a more active role in our meetings and the charity? 

Our long-standing Treasurer has indicated he’d prefer to pass the role on, and we have always welcomed more members on our board of Trustees.
We really need help to make a difference for libraries in the UK.  
Any offers of help are very welcome so please get in touch.
