Following public consultations, GLEAN Hub, the charity that runs Gnosall Community Library changed the opening hours for the library with the aim of making access better for potential users
Robert Alker, Chairman of GLEAN Hub CIO says:” We have consulted library users and seen what works in practice, so that we can ensure our service meets the needs of as many people as possible. We have a better fit with other users of the Grosvenor Centre site and I am particularly pleased that we will be open for an extra session on Thursday afternoons.”
The new hours came into effect on Monday 6th January 2020 after formal permission was received from Staffordshire County Council, Glean-Hub’s partner at the library.
The new community-managed library was opened in February 2019 and has gone from strength to strength. There is a committed group of volunteers who man the library during opening hours and who run activities there, including baby bounce and rhyme, a coffee and cake morning, IT buddies, family history, and a reading cafe.
A new computer for use by the public has been recently installed in the library, as well as a new scanner. These are available for all Staffordshire Libraries members with an access pin. It is recommended that sessions are booked (either on-line or in the library) to avoid disappointment.
The new opening hours for the library are as follows:
Monday: 4:00pm - 6:30pm; Tuesday: 10:00am - 12:30pm; Wednesday: 3:00pm - 7:00pm; Thursday: 2:00pm - 4:00pm; Saturday: 10:00am - 12:30pm
