We hope to set up a Friends Club when we are fully into our stride. WE NEED VOLUNTEERS NOW FOR FUND-RAISING.
Your Community of Berkeley is keeping your Library going because some public spirited people have volunteered to be trained to perform the jobs of an "Assistant" Librarian and are are enjoying their time manning the desks, handling the books and doing the other things to keep a library running.
In addition to the Volunteer Librarians we have a valuable team of General Volunteers for other jobs e.g. cleaning, decorating etc.
WE NEED MORE VOLUNTEER LIBRARIANS & GENERAL VOLUNTEERS. Each librarian's shift is 3 hours. You choose AM or PM; Tuesday, Friday or Saturday AM and the number of shifts that you can do each month. Most Volunteer Librarians have been able to undertake one shift each fortnight or one a week. Some have undertaken more frequent shifts. Volunteer Librarians will be trained to use the TALIS computers for handling the movement of books etc. If you can help as a Volunteer Librarian or General Volunteer, please email the Library Secretary, Margaret Tayler.
Please make proposals about how any aspect of the library could be improved. Please write them on a slip of paper and place it in the box on the library counter.
When the Library is up and running we envisage restarting or introducing a number of schemes aimed at the elderly and the children; including the older children:
Anybody interested in assisting in such activities is requested to contact our Secretary, Margaret Tayler
