The vision i have for Grove community library is space wide.
Tuesday 9.30 to 1.30
It seems to me that churches together would be a great medium for Library expansion we are looking for another 30 volunteers to cover wastage and bring our group up to 50 helpers.
We are heading towards self sufficiency having been given a start by the kind vote of grove church members It is hoped to install shelves in doctors,opticians ,dentists, hairdressers ,mother and toddler groups, nursery groups etc. Each group is able to advertise on our 50 inch screen for free. And given the opportunity for targeted advertising on the reverse of our library adverts we are currently dealing in our first 5000 leaflets at 5p/ sheet. This will make our advertising pay for itself.
The library helpers are unofficially supported by several churches whose members have turned up to help. And half of our helpers are general public drawn in by what we do. so mission is at the heart of the project. We are looking for all types of media except tape c assets and VHS( Biggest need Children DVD's)
We currently have to lend 5911 items all of which are high quality. Anything remotely substandard is given to other charities our main charity being Pinderfields ophthalmic department who are generating much improved funding working in partnership with us. So if you know of any other charity looking for advertising in the space area or needing stock for fundraising please advise them and us we will be delighted to help.
