Friends of Oundle Library AGM

Article text
The FOOL AGM included a review of the previous year by Chair, Ann Guy. The last seven months have been dominated by our fight to save Oundle Library from closure as the Northamptonshire reorganisation of library services was implemented. For the moment we are ‘safe’ but fear this may still change because of the parlous state of the County Council’s finances. We need to remain vigilant.

For the time being, however, the FOOL committee will focus on supporting the library in every way possible. Money raised from the sale of this year’s calendar is being used to buy new furniture for the space where the East Northants District Council desk used to be. The plan is for this to be an area with comfortable seating which can also be used by local community groups and organisations for displays and drop-in sessions.

Voting was done to elect the Officers and Committee:
Chair: Ann Guy
Secretary: Jenny Smith
Treasurer: Tony Hoyle
Minutes Secretary: Hilary Hoyle
Tony de Heveningham
Caroline Kisby
Angela Leakey
Kay Rothnie
Charlotte Williams
