Friends of St Just Library

Posted on: 23rd February 2014

At the public meeting to talk about the proposed reduction of opening hours at St Just Library, passions ran high.

You will find a number of items on this site about that but here I want to concentrate on the possibility of setting up a Friends of St Just Library.

I suppose a bit like groups that are ‘Friends’ of hospitals or Parent/ Teacher Associations. If it takes off, it could be a way of staff being supported in planning additional events at the Library, it could be a way of fundraising for extra’s that enhance what the Library offers and it could be a place where volunteers operate to help more people enjoy the Library.

People will know I have resisted social media but I have been told that Fiona Wootton has set up a Facebook page. To get to it go to . There is also a Facebook petition.

If you could not come to the meeting but would like to become a ‘Friend of St Just Library’ then contact me on
