Ivinghoe Library Turns Over New Leaf
9:39am 2nd June 2012
Families in Cheddington, Edlesborough, Ivinghoe, Ivinghoe Aston, Marsworth, Mentmore, Pitstone and Slapton can take a look at their new library today.
The old one in Ivinghoe was saved from closure and officially re-opens today as the Beacon Villages Community Library.
Speaking to Mix 96, Emma Huxley is the Chair of the library's managment team who was behind the surge to take on the service from the council: "We've been campaigning for and working for about two years now to make sure the library continues to run.
All the core services remain but we'll be looking to tailor the service to the needs of our community."
Emma added: "The thing we really need help with now is fundraising. As a charity, we have to raise enough cash to cover running costs and do all the ambitious things we'd like to do in future."
