Welcome to our Website
Friends of Cobbett Road Library (FCRL) is an informal group of people of all ages who meet at monthly intervals in the library. FCRL initially came into being to protect a greatly valued community asset and members set about publicising their cause in the local newspaper, putting posters in their windows. Since then the FCRL and Cobbett Road Library have gone from strength to strength organising events, activities and, with Library staff, making the library the centre of a friendly and lively local community.
SCA Group and UP worked hard to prepare for the handover from the Council. This included organising training of volunteers to support Library operations.
Because of the number of volunteers and the hours they are available, from Friday August 12 the Library will no longer be closed from 1pm to 2pm.
The Library's future is secured. What was the "Save YOUR Library" page is now called "Campaigning 2011 to 2016", and has details of who will be operating the Library from June 4, and how the change from Council operation came about.
