You would have no doubt read in local and national press that many community libraries are closing to help ease the financial pressures on borough councils. Never ones to shy away from anything the community benefits from, we decided to put together a business plan to help ‘save’ our local community library – Beechcroft Library

We were successful! Stratton St Margaret Parish Council will continue to run Beechcroft Library in Upper Stratton from early September 2017. Swindon Borough Council are backing us with our plan and have allocated funding to support us with the continuation of the library, which is great news.

Our plan is to make the library a ‘Community Hub’ for local residents and local business owners. A place to meet, a place to unwind, a place for the community.

SBC have awarded us the opportunity to run the library on an annual service level agreement – we have 12 months to make this work, and with the community behind us, we hope we can do it.

To make it a place everyone wants to be, we know we’re going to have to do some maintenance, redecorating and improve the experience for you all, so in order to do this we’ve started a Crowdfunder and we’d love your support: https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/bringing-a-library-hub-back-to-the-community
