Chew Stoke residents to choose agenda for Community Library
Chew Stoke residents are invited to a Community Library Open Event, hosted by Bath & North East Somerset Council and partners, at The Stoke Inn Pub, on Wednesday 10April 2013, from 10am until 2pm. The event will give residents a chance to indicate their preferences about future projects and sessions taking place at the pub.
The Stoke Inn project aims to develop the pub's current book exchange into a Community Library. The library will support work that the Council and the Stoke Inn are planning with Bath College, Community Learning, and Age UK.
Councillor David Dixon (Lib Dem, Oldfield), Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods, said: "Bath & North East Somerset Council is working with partners to develop Community Libraries in local venues where there is space both to provide book stock and to offer activities that will enhance and support a Community Library. Together we plan to run themed social events for the over 50s at the Chew Stoke Community Library, such as story writing, sharing memories, local and family history and computer surgeries. It is hoped that that this will become an on-going locally facilitated event for the area through the development of a Friends Group or voluntary group of library supporters."
It is proposed that sessions take place either fortnightly or monthly on Wednesday mornings. The menu of sessions will be selected through the interest shown by local residents and the order of the sessions will be negotiated with residents and the parties involved.
