Volunteers from the team who operate Open House at Ryhall Library celebrate their first anniversary of opening up the village library building for community use with a well earned glass of fizz and helpings of home-made cake.
The Open House at Ryhall Library team, which comprises about 20 volunteers working under the guidance of coordinator and Parish Councillor Adrian Gombault, has been serving hot drinks and making the library building’s facilities available to the community every Tuesday and Friday afternoon for the past year. During this time, various activities have attracted new visitors to the library, including IT support workshops, Knit and Natter sessions and class groups from nearby Ryhall Academy. In addition, regular library users have been able to take out and return books. It has resulted in a footfall increase.
