Burgess Road Library is the busiest community library in Southampton. Since 2016 we have kept the doors open here at Burgess Road for 26 hours a week (across four days) running a full public library service, staffed only by volunteers.
With approximately 20,000 visitors a year we are a a valuable community resource.
But we want to do more. In order to keep the library sustainable into the long-term, we hope to appoint a part-time Community Library Manager. Having researched how other community libraries operate, we are seeking to recruit someone who can co-ordinate and train our volunteers, and expand our activities programme.
We anticipate costs of £35,000 for the first 3 years.
